Train 451 NB past MP 22.5 at 2 pm with a CN locomotive leading CPRail 5046 which looked like one of their old SD40-2's with the extended short hood for radio control equipment for the old-days DPU operations across the Rockies. In the old days you never saw a CP locomotive on CN: hated each other too much!

Manistique, read on the previous page! That engine was 2nd in consist on train 385 yesterday! It's a "Re-built" Eco SD40-2, now CP SD30C-ECO #5046!!!!
I bet the CN engine leading is also from yesterday's 385, C40-8W #2099!!!!

WB on track 4 in Port Huron. Pair of CN units- 3068 is trailing 2913. They weren't moving all that fast through the yard, but they were moving steadily. Maybe there's something to that new style of running through the tunnel I've been reading about.
