385 is still waiting just NE of Milwaukee Junction. Not sure what he's waiting for. I can see a flashing yellow over red over red signal on the Shoreline sub. CN 2855 is second engine.

Edit: 385 was waiting for a dwarf signal to turn green. When it did the Shoreline sub signal turned green also.

Looks like some maintenance equipment approaching Oakland and Nevada on the other track (2).

Are you sure ? It was the L 503 when they went by Delray.

I'm pretty sure 451 does not run anymore and was replaced by 503 which runs from FR to Pontiac.

Hard to travel east/west. Caniff closed west of I-75 (not at tracks). Holbrook closed at Holly Sub crossing. And a deer with antlers ran in front of my car on Oakland north of McNichols, heading east toward the tracks and I-75 :shock:

North of Clay Ave on the Holly Sub, there are two cars full of ties. Will try to post picture later.
