Late post but here's what I saw in New Haven today:
384 at 4:45 PM with CN 2539 and CN 2509
382 at 5:30 PM with CN 2006 and BCOL 4641
533 at 8:15 PM with CN 8012
Surprisingly, I didn't see 385 at all between 3:40 PM and 8:30 PM.

ConrailDetr​oit, what was the "Power" from train 385 yesterday, 7-20? I happened to see part of it from work in Warren!


"UPDATE" 7-23-17: I guess it isn't "Known" what "Power" was on train 385 on Thursday, 7-20!!!! :|

Today, 7-23, I saw the "Green" for "Northbound" train 382 at "CP Beck" (Utica Road crossing, Fraser)! It had CN ES44AC #2811, CN C40-8 #2014, CN "ZEBRA COWL" C40-8M #2410, and a "Wide Nosed" GE (unsure of number─probably 26XX) with 174 cars! I "Like" these new "BRIGHT" signals! Train at 8:42 a.m. as I photographed from the "Bushes!!!!" :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

502 has GTW 5936 (original paint) trailing behind a CN today. Currently backing up to use the Wye to head south. It already connected to the rest of its train, but it brought out over 30 cars from the yard, so the power was still on the curve by the depot by the time it came up to the rest of its train. I'll post when it proceeds south.

A southbound, that reportedly came from Flint, is going through Linden right now at 2:43pm with GTW 4626 (CN paint) and SD40-2 widecab 5291 leading, both LONG HOOD forward. Going a bit slower than normal so there should be plenty of time to head for the tracks if anyone wants to catch it.

I have not yet had the chance to see 513 work its way down the old Belt Line and down past Columbia Ave. Did you happen to get any pictures?

Yes. Willl post pics in the near future. 513 works the Pontiac Metal Center on Wednesdays sometime after 4pm. 513 is on duty at 4pm, Sunday thru Thursday. The other customers are switched as the cars show up but the metal center is set to be switched on Wednesdays. If they are not working the beltline then they are switching the yard.
