451 is stoped at Gains with an unknown problem. Once 451 gets things sorted out and clear of the Holly, 502 will head south.

451 is back underway again, the problem was a dragging cable to a traction motor on one of the trailing engines. CN 2804 is leading 451.

Edit to add:

451 cleared the Chicago wye at 6:02 PM. 502 did the same at 6:12 PM.

another edit to add: 502 cleared the detector MP 34.2 at 7:02 PM. 204 axles

At 11:40 am while having lunch on my patio a SB all sand train went by with three CN engines. As soon at it cleared 451 came NB with leased CREX 142 leading a CN locomotive and a long train of mostly autoracks.

Train 515 returning to Pontiac past MP 22.5 at 4:55 pm. Long train today, 42 cars, and that 5847 was really barking up the Hill, doing a respectable 35 mph or so. A fair number of hi-cubes, probably from the CR interchange, but going to where?
