Scanner’s OOS so I couldn’t catch a train symbol, but a giant WB intermodal just went flying thru EL, 19:05.
If the Conductor is in charge of the train, then why is he promoted to Engineer?

At 5 am this morning a NB extra doublestack with one locomotive (if there was a DPU it wasn't running as I didn't hear it) went past MP 22.5. I just got a glance of the locomotive and I wondered it if might have been 5930, which has been assigned to Pontiac this past week, for local power.

A second container train, with a DPU in the middle, is SB past MP 22.5 on the Holly at 10:05 am. Maybe that weekly 326 from Prince Rupert? I would say that container traffic into Moterm is ticking up a bit lately, at least from the Holly Sub.

short eb by 205 at 1307 with a former csx leader. I would guess it's 502 considering the time of day and length of train.

There is a northbound good to depart Pontiac at 6:39 PM. I never did hear the crew side of the conversation. I believe this to be 451 that Manistique posted about.

Amtrak 350 was 2.5 hours late arriving at Pontiac this afternoon. It has not left Pontiac yet as 355 as of 7 pm.

Update: Amtrak 355 out of Pontiac and past MP 22.5 at 7:23 pm. Got out before 352 arrived in Pontiac.

149 by 205 at 2000. It looked to have about 4 units leading. Within the last few minutes 451 made the turn west in Durand, no pickup at cory tonight, straight to the creek.
