Thanks for the engine numbers - I can't always see them from my vantage point. With regard to the speed, I did notice today a ton of slow order boards posted up and down the line. They have renewed a number of crossings in the past several days and have been doing some spot tamping here and there (tamper and regulator in MTC right now), so perhaps there are some issues up at New Haven slowing them just a bit. Thanks again.

116 cleared the detector MP 59.9 at 1:01 AM, 3355 feet long. (Missed axle count)

Indeed BNSF 3912 leading. Same engine as 116 yesterday morning.

I caught both 116 and 391 at Williams Lake Rd.

116 at 1:38 AM BNSF 3912 solo. First time I have seen the same engine on the same train two days in a row.

then 391 went north at 1:58 AM. CN 3014, CN 3012, CN 3118.

Edit to add:
391 cleared the detector MP 59.9 at 2:50 AM. 2100 feet long, 130 axles.

Also what I believe to be 148 cleared the detector MP 257.1 at 2:53 AM 272 axles.

One of the locals is making up its train in Pontiac Yard. I think it’s the Warren train because it was sorting center beams. Couldn’t tell which engine it was.
PatC created a monster, 'cause nobody wants to see Don Simon no more they want AARR I'm chopped liver, well if you want AARR this is what I'll give ya, bad humor mixed with irrelevant info that'll make you roll your eyes quicker than a ~Z~ banhammer...
