There was a SB this morning around 5:15 am past MP 22.5. Maybe another 116?


I thought heard a southbound roll through town not too long after catching 28 this morning but never did figure out what it was.

Lite GP9r 4626 just drifted NB past MP 22.5 at 1:15 am. Maybe this was returning Train 950 with new power today?

Was this Q130 a SB train? I'm guessing it was because Q131 is a NB intermodal train on the Mount Clemens Sub, and Q130 sounds like its counterpart.

Northbound, and was identified as Q130 by CN Desk 8 and a trackside maintainer. The SB counterpart operates as Q131 according to the railroad, although I've heard on more than one occasion a crew misidentifying a symbol. General rule of thumb on CN (with a sprinkling of anomalies), even symbols NB and EB, odds SB and WB. The Q trains on the MTC sub from their inception in 1990 and forward (Q140/Q141, Q142/Q143 and Q144/Q145, have all operated in this manner, so it's my best guess that 130/131 do this as well - but it's not beyond the railroad to try and confuse railfans!

NB M384 at Milwaukee Jct at 19:40. I think an ex Warbonnet was 3rd of 3 engines.
