That BNSF-led autorack train Jim reported earlier is SB flying past MP 22.5 on the Holly at 2:09 pm. Not Thanksgiving in Canada, eh?

And nine minutes later Train 451 NB past MP 22.5 with two CN units.

Do you know the locomotive numbers? Is this a train that heads through Pt. Huron on the way to Canada? I probably won't be able to get it!!!!

This train is Toronto to Chicago intermodal. It would have been through Port Huron before dawn. I'll have to start taking notes of the unit numbers for those who like to keep track of that stuff.

OK, that would help! Do you know what models any of them they were? Also, what was the 3rd engine? I am guessing "CN."
