I heard a partial mark up for 451, They just gave Engines and fuel reading for each.

CN 2425
CREX 1512
UP 8106
CN 2037

Why the swap of power I have not a clue. When the information was given 451 still had some work in the yard at Pontiac.


Edit to add:

451 good to depart Pontiac northbound at 4:20 PM.

What looked like a Train 280 with a lot of mixed freight on the head end (many Richardson covered hoppers) SB past MP 22.5 at 7:32 am. Too dark to see the power but the second unit looked like a UP locomotive.
