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.


Wait, really? Did it get replaced by something north of Pontiac, because I saw a northbound I assumed was 451 yesterday early afternoon while eating at Yaya's in Fenton. Same power Manistique reported a few hours earlier that morning passing his house on what he thought was 451 as well. Just curious, I like to know what the operations are so I can keep up on what's running near my house on the Holly.

Maybe it is still running, but not every day. 391 has been picking up 503s cars, but I believe 391 didn't run yesterday. So that may have been 503 that you saw.

Darn, I really like 451 too. Oh well, hopefully 503 will run fairly regularly north of Pontiac, even if it's not daily. It would be nice to continue having a daylight northbound on the Holly.

Coming home from work a few minutes ago (no scanner), I observed double stacks on the west end of the yard at Port Huron. Unless something has changed, this is the wrong time of day for intermodal in this area. I don't think I've even seen L533 run at this time of day before.

It's only running as 503 while Ford is down for the usual two weekish shut down this time of year.

116 is good to head south from Pontiac, at 1:44 AM
BCOL 4654 and sounded like CN 2510, Not sure due to static on the scanner.

So I have been doing some posts that are accepted but when I check out the board later are not there. Anyone else having that trouble. They are there right afterwards but drop out later sometimes. Odd

Train 391 with only one locomotive and a short train NB past MP 22.5 around 7:30 pm.

I'm pretty sure Markham Yard is the old IC yard in Markham/Homewood, IL.
