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."
