Train 391 a bit early today passing MP 22.5 NB at 7 pm with two CN's and a short train.

Three SB's went past MP 22.5 during the night that I heard. One around 10 pm, probably 502. Then a couple around 5 am, maybe 116 first and the second one was rattling the house a bit and wasn't too long so I am guessing a loaded sand train.

Train 950 returned to Pontiac past MP 22.5 NB at 12:30 with 9571 running light.
