And an early 391 is rolling NB past MP 22.5 as I type this! Power: BNSF 7356, 3995 and UP 8811 and 6833. Whose railroad is this anyway?

And at 6:30pm and early 502 SB past MP 22.5 with, guess what, two BNSF units leading two UP units, different locomotives than 391's. Whose...

a northbound cleared the detector at 6:44 PM. did not catch any engine numbers. I did hear the dispatcher refer to a very late 451 and I suspect that is what I heard.

Not an early 391 but a very late 451.

I caught 116 at Airport Rd at 1:47 AM. IC 1027, CN 2021, NS ????.

Had 686 axels at the Detector MP 34.2, That is about the third highest I have heard.

I know I will be asked " What were to other two?

A combined 391/767 back in 2015 twice. Both were over 900 axels.

116 IC 1027 leading CN 2021 and NS 8350 southbound just made the turn from the Holly to main 1 at the Junction with a much shorter train than previously reported.

What looked like a 515 Local just rolled SB past MP 22.5 on the Holly at 10:32 with two locomotives today: 4901 and 4916. Not sure if this is a combined 950/515 today or what but didn't see 950 go by yet and the consist of this train looked like a 515. Maybe a long returning train up the Hill this afternoon so two locomotives? We will see.

A local just went back to Pontiac NB at 1:45 pm but I was walking and only heard it. Sounded like a single GP38 on it or at least only one running. So don't know what is going on with the locals today. We will see if another comes back to Pontiac later today.

Train 451 NB past MP 22.5 around 3 pm today. IC 1017 was second unit. First one was a recently repainted narrow nose GE but forgot the number.

Well, the 515 just headed back to Pontiac passing MP 22.5 NB at 3:54 with the same doubleheaded locomotives as this morning and a short train. So if that was 950 I heard going back at 1:45 it had a third locomotive that sounded like a Geep.
