Some freight followed Amtrak 351 down the Hill out of Pontiac this morning, passing MP 22.5 at 6:15 am. Too dark to see it. Maybe 116?

Train 950 with 4632 running lite SB past MP 22.5 following Amtrak 353 around 10:07 am.

Train 515 with 6221 SB past MP 22.5 a few minutes later.

Train 451 went barreling through MP 22.2 on Main 2 at around noon with two CN locomotives and a long train.

Amtrak 350 had a baggage car on the rear today instead of the second snack car it has been using for the CN grade crossing train length requirement. It should be in the head end on the trip back to Chicago tonight on 355.

Around 4 pm returning Train 515 was NB past MP 22.5.

Around 4:40 pm a Train 280 (all autoracks) with two BNSF locomotives elephant style went flying SB past MP 22.5. Must have been on Main 2.

Northbound flying through Royal Oak at 11:40. Sounds like a Gevo and likely 451, but I did not see it, only heard it.

A SB local out of Pontiac with 4632 went past MP 22. at 12:20 pm. It had two road units behind it (a CN and a CITX) and a short train. Maybe an extra doublestack train today out of Moterm with that power?
