Amtrak 353, which just went SB past MP 22.5, has two private cars on the tail end, the last one an open end observation car. The private cars were two-toned grey with the word "Charter" along the top.

Wb with 3 units by 205 at 0915. Pretty close to the same time there was a 700+ axle wb across the 257. It sounds like they're putting together a 711 at Delta siding in Lansing.

118 was by the 205 at 0950. The train was close to fully loaded and had the normal arrangement with one unit on either end.

Where would MP 205 and MP 219 be located. I'm in Lansing and am hearing multiple defect detectors go off at those two mileposts.

205 is the west side of potterville, 219 is near Lansing rd and i496 on the west side of lansing but east of snow yard. If you're listening on my scanner feed those are the only 2 cn detectors I'm hearing today. If you have a radio on 160.59 you might hear the 232 if you're on the east side of town. It's at shoeman rd east of east lansing.
