That was 149, he came out of the tunnel around 1700 and after customs and I presume a pick up that would be why he was still there.

That 502 Jim reported in Pontiac went SB past MP 22.5 around 10 pm. I never saw its counterpart, 391 last night but was out for a short bit.

At 2 am a NB with 6221 went past my house. Probably a Train 513 last night headed back to Pontiac.

502 is ready to depart Durand.

502 has 37 loads, 11 empty, 3686 feet long.
CN 2925 leading,
CN 2911 trailing.

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