At 12:20 pm I saw what looked like Train 451 entering Pontiac Yard. Did not see the power.

At 1:15 pm I saw GTW 5844 sitting in Pontiac Yard. Not sure if it was working or just parked at the end of a cut of cars. This may be a new locomotive assignment for Pontiac maybe replacing one of the two recently-assigned locomotive stalwarts, 6221 or 4632.

At 7:30 pm Train 391 went NB past MP 22.5.

At 8 pm a Train 513 went SB past MP 22.5 with 6221.

Saw Train 451 working NB through Pontiac at 11:35 am with a CN locomotive leading two UP ones.

Train 515 SB past MP 22.5 with 6221 at 12:15 pm.

What looked like an old Train 950 SB past MP 22.5 at 2:30 pm. Kind of late for this train and it is supposed to be discontinued so maybe it is a 513. I think it had 4632 as power. Had a typical 950 consist.

Hey Man o' War, yesterday you probably meant
"GTW 4934" because I don't remember "GTW 4924" being on train 533 lately!!!! :wink:
