502 Rolled passed the detector MP 34.2 about 10:35 PM. with 340 axles. I am just going on what I hear on the scanner and not 100 % sure on engine numbers tonight. but I do believe 502 has CN 2886.

Also 391 is working in the yard at Pontiac and believe it is BNSF 6301 leading.

Southbound through Pontiac. The horn didn't sound like CN but I couldn't see the engine.
PatC created a monster, 'cause nobody wants to see Don Simon no more they want AARR I'm chopped liver, well if you want AARR this is what I'll give ya, bad humor mixed with irrelevant info that'll make you roll your eyes quicker than a ~Z~ banhammer...

OK, the new CTC is on and working between "Nolan" and "Tappan!" I guess this means no more "Track Authority" north of "Nolan!!!!" OK, does anyone know if there would be any "Chatter" of trains as they travel down the line? I will miss this!!!! Now, here's what was said by Brian on the "Other" Board: "Thanks for the updates. At least one person was able to make a recording of the last track authority given, a little before noon on Friday (10-20). The honor went to L524 NB heading back to Port Huron. "

Yesterday (10-28) I photographed southbound train 533 about 3:24 p.m. at "The Up Place" off Mary Street, Mt. Clemens! It had "Blue" IC C40-8W #2466!!!! :D :D It was pulling a few loaded "Well Car" sets!!!! I hope I got a nice picture of this train in the sunlight! Now friend "Mazon" and I followed it, catching it at 9 Mile in Warren! However, my 35mm was set at "Self Timer" and I missed getting a good picture there!!!! Went to Ferndale and waited for a while near 9 Mile! OK, train 533 is now entering Moterm Yard from the south end─unlike heading north of Woodward Heights Road and "Backing" in! I miss seeing the whole train pass by twice doing it like that! Now (around 5 p.m.), we saw the 2466 "Light" engine pass going north, then south before returning to Pt. Huron! I am glad we saw this nice engine! :wink: I hope it'll be on 533 again today (because I'll be ready)! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
