At 4:35pm, what I'm guessing was a X116 was going through Fenton heading towards Detroit with 8866 and 8021 leading. Some mixed up front, lots of stacks following.

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:

OK Folks, I "Volunteered" at the MTM station, Mt. Clemens today (10-29)! Again I caught
"Blue" IC C40-8W #2466 leading train 533 southbound!!!! I photographed it about 2:51 p.m. at "The Up Place" off Mary Street pulling a few loaded "Well Car" sets!!!!

A SB, I'm guessing 502, was going through Linden at about 5:55pm. 2183 and 5442 leading.

CN ran a SB freight, I am presuming 116, out of Pontiac about ten minutes before Amtrak 351 departed. It didn't delay 351 so probably went down Main 2. It went past MP 22.5 at 5:40 am.

Train 950 had black 4904 as power today, changed from blue 4926 which was only on for a week or so. It is returning to Pontiac at 2:38 pm past MP 22.5. Train 515 had 6223 again today.

There is an eastbound going through East Lansing at 20:53. Guess Amtrak is taking a little hit tonight.

Edit
Amtrak made a nice quick stop and was out of East Lansing at 21:04, only down 10 minutes.
