Might as well since somehow the July thread was still being used plus since only a few will use this thread it'll cover the final three months of 2017...

Trenton 3 spotted at Oak Street in Wyandotte at 15:50 EDT. NS high-hood ex-Southern GP38-2 5010 (horsehead), three boxcars from MPI and two tankers from Jones.
