CN Locals on the Flint Sub

Unread postby GTWwatcher » Sat Dec 01, 2018 4:13 pm

I've been out of the loop for awhile, so I apologize if I ask a question that has an obvious answer.

What locals run on the Flint Sub between Lansing and Port Huron? I know of 501 and 502. Does L500 still work out of Flint? Thanks in advance.

500 works from Flint east to Lapeer?

501 runs out of Sarnia, through the Tunnel, and works Port Huron, then continues west.

504 runs from Battle Creek? east to Durand, then works Flint and Port Huron.

L540? out of Pontiac will often run north up the Holly to Durand, do some work in the yard, and then go to Flint before head back to Pontiac.

514 from Flint to Pontiac was abolished September 2018. Ran overnights out of Flint. 950 in Pontiac was also eliminated then.

514 also did the work between West Pontiac and Durand en route. Any local business on the entire Holly Subdivision is served from Pontiac now.

500 is still active.

504 is running out of Battle Creek. They have been stopping to pickup at Flint and Lapeer.
