At 8 pm 4912 was NB past MP 22.5 on the Holly with a couple cars and a depressed center flat car with four trucks and a large transformer load. A late Holly Local returning to Pontiac? Or a special move for the transformer?

OK Folks, here's Facebook® photos of Train 148 east bound out of Sarnia this morning, April 18, 2018. It has two "Cowl" CN SD60F locomotives!!!! What gives? Those all were "Officially Retired" last year! Have any been "Re-activated" since CN is "Power Short?" :?: If so, that would be awesome!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
