Southbound in Fenton right now (6:40pm). No clue on engines, I only
Saw the tail end which were autoracks. 502 I presume.

149 going thru okemos now, 4 units including a gtw 4944? As the 4th unit. Might be wrong on the number for it, but it's in CN colors.

Train 503/451 NB past MP 22.5 at 3:15 pm following Amtrak but on Main 2. They seem to be using Main 2 more lately. I wonder if they completed the maintenance on it yet? They are done replacing ties in Bloomfield Hills on Main 2.

Returning Train 515 with 4926 past MP 22.5 at 4:10 pm.

Is the CN 1501 the same train I caught by accident in the video below in 2016, or did I catch something different?

At 6 am a SB went past MP 22.5 on the Holly. Looked like a 280 Autorack from the bit I saw of it though it may have been 116 with racks on the tailend.

Combined weekend Train 950/515 SB past MP 22.5 at 8:10 am with 4619 as power.

Train 950/515 just returning to Pontiac lite at 10:24 am past MP 22.5.

451 (L503?) north through Andersonville on the Holly at 1820. CN 2444 & 8101 for power. Should be meeting 502 at Holly.

Edit: 502 through Andersonville at 1848. NS 8131 & 8133.

That 391 reaching Pontiac at 7:46 pm.

Train 502 went SB past MP 22.5 around 9:30 pm.

Amtrak 353 was very late, passing MP 22.3 around 11:00 pm instead of the usual 8 pm timeframe last night.

That CN Budd Inspection car just went SB past MP 22.5 on the Holly at 1:39 pm. He had just gone NB an hour earlier so he will probably be done on the Holly now. Maybe heading to the Mount Clemens Sub? Don't know where it was running yesterday.
