A light locomotive, sounded like a geep, just drifted SB past MP 22.5 on the Holly. Probably a 513 local.

Seems like after years of jacking around turning single unit power at Milwaukee Jct., they've finally decided on two back to back engines to simplify and expedite ops.

This is alright! I miss seeing units (such as 'Cowls') running "Long Hood Forward" to Ferndale! At least I photographed that sometimes! Well now, it seems they are using two GP38-2 locomotives for 533 regularly!!!! Maybe someday we'll get two "Blue" GTW units on the same train!!!!

It's "Nostalgia" for the past!
Here's a photo I took (Canon® AE-1 Program™ 35mm) of GTW locos at Schaefer Yard, Dearborn, 11-3-2009: Image

OK, so they put
"Blue" GTW GP38-2 #4934 back onto train 533!!!! I thought that engine went to Flint and they replaced it with "CN" painted IC GP38-2 #9571! :?:
I guess that didn't last long!!!!

At 6:30 am a SB went by MP 22.5. From what I saw of it, it was an all autorack 280 but it wasn't too long. Maybe it was a late 116 but if it was it didn't have many containers on it.

Train 451 NB past MP 22.5 with CN Cowl 2421 and leased CITI 141 at 1:25 pm.

A NB just cleared 14 mile on mt Clemens sub. A little early to be 384 based on the time it's been running lately. An extra perhaps?
