A southbound just pulling in to Pontiac at 6:30 AM, CN 2600 This should be 116 but I am not 100% sure.

No work at Pontiac will swap crews at the south end of the yard. The outbound crew on duty at 6:45 AM

That train Jim reported in Pontiac an hour ago was 116. It went SB past my house at MP 22.5 at 7:30 am. Short train. Just a few mixed freight cars on the head end. Two CN locomotives.

It must've dropped off some wells in Pontiac or something, it was a good sized train coming out of Durand. I think I counted somewhere around 80 wells.

And I didn't see a DPU either so maybe something stayed at Pontiac. Don't know why.

I caught both 391 and 502 at Williams Lake Rd.

First was 502 at 10:38 PM CN 3039, CN 2863.

391 rolled by northbound at 10:53 PM, IC 1032, CN 2130, CN 2200.

Between 502 and 391 over the scanner feed. I heard 514 give a markup.

GTW 4934 41 total cars and 3020 feet long, with 2 cars being "dimensional" I heard that about 10:45 PM. they had 12 cars to set off at Durand, on the way down to Pontiac. Per ATCS they are just arriving at Durand now.

Edit to add.
Caught 514 at Williams Lake Rd 1:27 AM. The "dimensional" loads must have been set off at Durand as they were not on the train when I caught it.

Trout Lake: Most of the pulp wood flats were picked up. A few box and tank cars were dropped off. The cars I thought were wood chip cars are actually center beam cars. There are 6 or so of them.
