What looks like a late Train 451 (from the number of autoracks) is NB past MP 22.5 with a blue leased 2017 trailing a CN locomotive. I don't recall seeing 451 yet today so probably is it.

A weekend local out of Pontiac drifted SB past MP 22.5 on Main 2 just about the same moment as Amtrak 353 went by on Main 1. Odd that one didn't hold up the other at MAL junction where Amtrak crosses over to Main 1. The local had 5847 as power. Amtrak had an engine on each end again (which means the Pontiac wye is still out of service from an earlier report).

There is no more "GTW 4629" as it was sold to PRLX in 2008! This must be
"CN Painted" GTW GP9r #4626!!!!

Two light locomotives, a silver Citi lease unit with a CN one, just drifted SB past MP 22.5 at 6 pm. Looks like the power that was on that extra doublestack train from yesterday so there may be an extra doublestack train out of moterm tonight.

At 9 pm Train 391 went NB past MP 22.5 with a short train.

At 10:11 pm an extra doublestacked container train went NB past MP 22.5 as predicted earlier above.
