A possible train 280 cleared the detector MP 59.9 southbound at 8:17 PM. BNSF 6994 leading.

Sounds like they will stop at Pontiac just long enough to pick up some paper work.

Edit to add:

They just cleared the detector MP 34.2 at 8:55 PM 240 axels,

Train 391 with 5738 and 5437 and a very long train consisting of largely sand covered hoppers with a lot of tanks, jumbo covered hoppers and boxcars. Nice to see those short sand covered hoppers again. They were a staple on the Holly for years. Past MP 22.5 at 8:49 pm.

Edit: Now that I'm at my computer I can see that Manistique and TrainStuff were posting about this train :oops:
The engine set is sitting by the engine service shed. A BNSF unit was added and the GP38-2 removed.
