Train 515 SB past MP 22.2 at 10:25 am. Missed the power.

Amtrak 353 went creeping by SB past MP 22.5 pretty much on time at 11:50 so it had a slow order out back. Train 515 flew through so not sure what changed in a half hour. Maybe the signals at Opdyke acting up?

At 4:15 light locomotives 3021 and 2829 drifted SB past MP 22.5 on the Holly. I presume for an extra doublestack out of Moterm tonight (Train 119).

And at 6:47 pm that Train 119 doublestack is rolling NB past MP 22.5 with that same power. Long train.

At 7:45 pm what looked like Train 502 went SB past MP 22.5 with two locomotives and a short train.

119 through East Lansing about 21:00. Thenstopped at cedar.

116 with CN 2840 & BCOL 4608 by at 21:35.

Amtrak 364 is late again, just by Potterville at 21:35.

Looks like 119 will wait for 364 at Cedar.
