5706 and 2597 powering Train 451 past MP 22.5 at 12:32 pm. The SD sounds like it is ready to blow its turbocharger powering the train up the hill.

CN 2011, GTW 4619 (GT blue paint) I don't have a guess for a train number.

4619 has been the power on 950 this week though I didn't see that train go by this morning and was out this afternoon. So something is up with the local power out of Pontiac if you saw it north of Pontiac on this unknown train.

Yes, it was north of Pontiac. In watching ATCS I did see a train head around the High Wye and head south on the Holly. I suspect they may have run up to Flint some time this morning, and I caught the return trip.

Southbound going through Linden at 8:11pm. Not sure what it is. Maybe a 280 or early 116?
