Probably the 450 that is currently working at Cory.

The Lansing yard job with 5650 just left Snow and will work Cory once 450 is done

-edit at 22:54

116 is coming through Potterville
450 is done at Cory and will follow 116 east

Three road units in the middle of Pontiac Yard, lights off.

Yard engine also in the middle but facing north with a box car, string of gondola's, and another car or two.
PatC created a monster, 'cause nobody wants to see Don Simon no more they want AARR I'm chopped liver, well if you want AARR this is what I'll give ya, bad humor mixed with irrelevant info that'll make you roll your eyes quicker than a ~Z~ banhammer...

I should count some day so I can give an educated answer. I'm thinking at least 20. There's been 4 since I got home from work about 8

20 seems like a pretty good guess.

I've got a list of 13 CN trains that should run most days, plus the 2 Amtrak's

Seems like most days there are at least a couple of the 270/280 series rack trains

Then there are the Lansing coal trains, the windmill trains & extra stack trains that all run as needed

I was out on Sunday from 7am-9pm & in that 14 hours they ran 11 CN plus the 2 Amtraks


The list
116
148
149
393
394
396
397
450
251
491
492
500
501

Eastbound with CN 3890 solo through East Lansing at 22:23

I assume this is the train seen at mp205 at 21:12 and probably is 450
