Something is arriving from the north into Pontiac Yard but I can't see it yet.

Edit: Now it sounds like it's going north from Pontiac

Southbound 383 was spotted leaving Detroit on the Shoreline Sub at 6:37 AM. CN 2651, BCOL 4604, CN 5438 were at the point. It was heading to the CSX Walbridge Yard and I'm pretty sure it is now sitting there by this point.

(late report) Had a pair of solid autorack trains through Port Huron yesterday. A loaded train west with CN 2141 as second unit, went west across Flint Sub upon departure sometime just before 4pm.

Also had an empty eastbound train come off the Mt. Clemens Sub around 1430 and headed straight into the tunnel, if I recall correctly. Leader was CN 3009. I was working on a project near the tracks, not totally focusing on the rail activity, hence my less than total recall of some details.

L503 is around Shaftsburg. It's supposed to have a single BCOL barn on point. CN dispatcher has another train lined lined from Okemos all the way to W. Shaftsburg so I think they're putting 503 in the hole.

EDIT: 503 is lined for the hole at Shaftsburg
