Is this northbound train 384? I know these "BLUE DEVILS" were on yesterday's southbound train 385! I am going to the tracks hoping they are heading up the Mt. Clemens Sub. Where are these engines now (8:14 p.m.)? :?:

Unusual eastbound through East Lansing at 01:07.
About 140-150 empty centerbeam flats. CN 8831 on the head end and CN 2225 in the middle.

A westbound (probably 501) followed a couple of minutes later with CN 2656 & 57??.

Also, 505 is just arriving at Durand to work the yard. GECX 9539 leading.

Does anyone know what "Power" train #385 has today, 7-17? Two days ago (7-15), 385 had "Blue" IC C40-8Ws #2455 and 2456!!!! I did not see it! Those two units came back north on train #384 yesterday! I missed that train by just a few minutes! It passed near my work just before I got out! I want to catch these "BLUE DEVILS!!!!" Please help!!!!

EDIT: Southbound train 533 had CN SD60 #5407 with four loaded "Well Car" sets, cleared Common Road, Roseville, 704 p.m. Southbound train 385 did not have "BLUE DEVILS!" It had just a CN C44-9W and a "Blue Lease" GE, didn't count cars! :|
