L514 was going into Durand at about 1:45pm, about to head south on the Holly Sub. I saw it between Byron and New Lothrop Roads as I was leaving town. Looked like the same CN and GTW as yesterday for power, and a short train.

Wb by 205 about 1452. I missed the power but it was crawling by the time the tail end went by. Last car was some sort of mandrel or something on an 8 axle flat.

Thanks atrainguy60 regarding the S756. That must have been the Sand Train - always wondered what symbol that was. I was working and couldn't see it, but always with 3 locos and 100 cars even - at least the ones I have seen.
