Amtrak 352 arrived at Pontiac about 45 minute late.

Two lite road locomotives drifted SB past MP 22.5 at 8:30 pm. I presume for a container train out of Moterm later tonight, maybe a returning 326 or whatever that container train was from yesterday.

It might be the sister to 136/326. I haven't seen anyone else mention a number for the westbound component and they both run with a dpu. From what I've seen 136 on the tail and 326 in the middle. Not sure if the placement has a bearing on the number since they both run Prince Rupert to Moterm

Would any of these have the
"Red Marker Lights" lit on the end? What kind of engines were they (IF ANYONE KNOWS)? :?: :?:

Locomotive 6223 seems to be the new regular power on Train 950, the Holly Local south of Pontiac. It went SB past MP 22.5 at 9:45 am with a short train.

Train 515 with 5930, which seems to be its regular power lately, SB past MP 22.5 at 11:35 am with a long train of mostly loaded centerbeams.

Train 451 went NB past MP 22.5 at 11:45 am with an 8900 series leading another CN unit.

Train 950 with 6223 NB past MP 22.5 at 2:50 with a short train returning to Pontiac.

Right behind it was Amtrak 350 at 2:58 pm with a locomotive on either end today. Probably dropping off a fresh spare/swap locomotive at Pontiac.

Returning Train 515 NB past MP 22.5 with 5930 returning home to Pontiac Yard at 7 pm.

Train 451 has two NS units again as power: 7568 and 9426. It is NB passing MP 22.5 at 2:16 pm on the Holly with a long train.

Right behind 451 was returning 950 with 6223 at 2:30 pm. This train lately has had a number of CN service gondolas full of old railroad ties. Must be pulling up another freight yard somewhere or track repair.

Old replaced ties. 950 gets them off the old Walker Wire spur.
