CN 2423 and 2646 were the light engines, which went back toward Toledo on 502.

Also had an intermodal extra go by Royal Oak at 9pm. - CN 2587 and 2534.

Train 950 with 4619 SB past MP 22.5 at 8:15 am.

Noticed that now with the new signals cut in at MAL Junction the new (from a year or two ago) signals at Opdyke have been changed operationally. They used to always shine green for SB and red for NB unless a NB was lined up. Now for NB's they always display what I call "approach" with Main 2 having a single Yeillow indication and Main 1 a Yellow over Red indication. Can anyone explain this change and what it means and why it happened?

Those signals are now block signals showing the true condition of the track ahead. Yellow and yellow over red are Approach indications which means the next signal at MAL is stop. The signal will also always show an approach when Amtrak is lined up as the signal at MAL is a Restricting for the station siding.

There is a southbound on the Holly Sub coming into Linden, MI. Maybe an early 502?

At 5:40 am this morning a SB went past MP 22.5 on Main 2. Didn't look to see what it may have been but guessing Train 116? It has been running a bit later lately than usual. Amtrak followed it out of Pontiac on Main 1.

At 12:10 pm Train 451 NB past MP 22.5 with three locomotives and a short train.

Heard a southbound with an RS3L through Linden about five minutes ago. Guessing this is 502 with maybe a C40-8W leading.

Edit: The real 502 came through Linden at 4:22 with a GEVO and what looked like an SD70M-2. Not sure what the earlier train was.

Quiet day on the Southern End of the Holly Subdivision today so far. Other than the Amtrak's, the only train I saw all day was 451 around 12:30 pm and I was home all day. Even the usual Sunday local train didn't seem to run today.

Train 391 NB at 8:30 pm past MP 22.5.
