An early 502 SB past MP 22.5 at 8:31 pm. Lead unit was CN 5326 (which looked like an SD40) followed by a 5400 series and a short train.

Had a northbound a clear the detector MP 34.2 at 2:32 PM, with 266 axels. Never did hear what was leading, I would believe this to be 451.

Then at 7:46 PM, what might be 502 cleared detector MP 34.2 at 7:46 PM, 440 axels. CN 2339 leading. this is I the yard at Pontiac.

Per the dispatcher 391 is passing through Birmingham as I write this(8:26 PM).

A northbound cleared the detector MP 34.2 at 8:14 PM, 424 axels, Believe CN 2150 Leading.

391 is ready to depart Pontiac northbound, but is waiting on train 280 to get into Pontiac. 391 did give a mark up, unfortunately, I did not hear the crew clearly enough to get the details. Looking at ATCS, 280 is abut to head around the Chicago wye at Durand.

Train 280 clear of the detector MP 34.2 southbound at 11:08 PM. 314 axels. BNSF 3995 leading. Will stop long enough at Pontiac to pick up paperwork.

Looking at ATCS there is a southbound at Gaines. I am guessing this to be 116.
