Weren't the Arkansas Missouri Alcos replaced with SD70ACes? Or were those just added to the roster?

Re: CSX Location Updates 11/23/13

728 and 296 have Q321 right now in Flint at McGrew Yard. The FXE SD70ACe is in the yard too with the coal train that I'm guessing will go north tonight. From the bridge on the north side I can see a CP triclops SD60M and another set of BNSF power by the shed. That's power from 3 different countries !

They have 4 BNSF units on the train - 5909, 5727, 8856, and 6414.
How long after arriving in flint does it take an N956 (Z144) to depart for Saginaw? I've been trying to catch one for a while now.
