Mt. Clemens Subdivision this evening,

384 met 385 on the double track between Forest Lawn and Nolan in Northeast Detroit about 7pm. I saw both trains at Veterans Park in Hamtramck.

384 - IC 2712 and CN 2581.
385 - CN 5656, NS 7669 and GECX 7733.

515, GTW 5847 was recrewed at Cargo Flo by 513 who taxied down Pontiac. 950, GTW 4934 also worked at Hoover today instead of 515.

533, CN 2230 arrived at Milwaukee Junction at 5pm, and spun their power before going to Moterm.

CN 3805 was 385. Saw 384, CN 5656 and GECX 7733 at Woodward Avenue in Detroit at 7:20pm, so they would have met 385 along the way.

533 had CN 2230 again this evening, they went to Moterm after Amtrak 355 cleared Milwaukee Junction.

391, CN 5409 and CN 2671 was by Caniff Street - Detroit at 7:58pm.
