Hearing Chicago East on my scanner at home tonight...

B09 with the NS 3528 leading eastbound has permission by the stop indication at CP-448 from track 2E to the I/N Tek lead. Track light on the lead has been stuck on for the last few days according to dispatcher.

CP Eastbound general freight arriving Oakwood Yard. Lots of plastic pellet covered hoppers.

Also the tank farm terminal near Detroit Metro Airport has 10 tank cars on its 2 spurs. It's been a long time since I saw this many cars there.
