eb past 205 at 0001. It was a stack train with a forward facing tail end dpu and a single unit up from so I'm guessing a late 136.

391 met 116 at Durand. The lead unit on 116 was smoking pretty good around the Chicago Wye at 1:22. It appeared to be a BC Rail

I caught 116 at Airport Rd at 2:26 AM BCOL leading a CN unit. I saw the smoke on camera at Durand, but smoke stopped by the time they got to me here in Waterford.

Late reports:

One of those two SB's out of Durand on the Holly from last night went SB past MP 22.5 around 2 am. Then around 4 am lite power drifted by, not sure it it was power back to Pontiac, I presume from 116, or light engines from that other SB.

Train 451 went NB past MP 22.5 around 1:30 pm. Did not catch the power but it was a long train barely making it up the Hill.
