At 4:32 pm a northbound train cleared the detector MP 34.2 with 400 axles. My best guess is this was 451.

I caught 502 at Airport Rd at 9:33 PM. Looked like CN 5011 (Hard to read in the dark.)


Edit to add:

502 is good to depart Pontiac southbound at 12:11 AM. It was CN 8011 leading. all I got out of the mark up was 4300 feet long.
