Re: CN - July 2017

Wait, really? Did it get replaced by something north of Pontiac, because I saw a northbound I assumed was 451 yesterday early afternoon while eating at Yaya's in Fenton. Same power Manistique reported a few hours earlier that morning passing his house on what he thought was 451 as well. Just curiou...

Looks like the CN updates have been thin lately? 397 in scanner at Sarnia right now. Also had what looked like a 385 come through the tunnel. Strangely, it was a short 385 with a ?-711 on the back. Is CN combining freight with empty oil trains now? Power was a BCOL cowl (4621) and CSX 444. F/R. 462...
