Probably that D707 mentioned that was at Lake Odessa around that timeframe. Lake O is between the MP12...

Re: Railroad Version Of Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader

5. What was this site called before it became simply railroadfan.com? Trick question, it's always been railroadfan.com
Actually, it was http://railroadfan.fateback.com for a short while in the early 2000's.

D706 had been going through south lyon in the morning, but Monday and Wednesday's train was in the evening I believe. Friday's train might be evening again. Watch this CSX train location update tomorrow to see its progress: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=37383&start=640

Word on the street says that D70524 was through Stark Rd near Plymouth just a short bit ago, so should be to South Lyon pretty soon.
D70824 is working Howell currently.. they sometimes go to South Lyon.
