Last night around 9 pm what I presume was 502 went SB past MP 22.5.

A few minutes later what may have been the local 513 followed 502.

This morning a SB followed Amtrak 351 out of Pontiac. I caught the tail end and it looked like mixed freight so if it was 116 it had stacks on the headend.

Amtrak 353 had eight cars today and an engine on both ends. Must be Thanksgiving week! Just passing MP 22.5 at 10:12 am, on time.

Train 515 with 5930 again today was SB past MP 22.5 around 11 am.

Train 451 was NB past MP 22.5 around 2 pm or so. Leased ex-CSX leading a BNSF locomotive. Short train.

Train 515 was NB returning to Pontiac passing MP 22.5 around 4 pm with 5930.

That 5603 west had a CSX leaser trailing. Through East Lansing about 20:30. I think they are waiting at Cedar for Amtrak.

Last night there was another 513 local prowling the Holly south of Pontiac. I heard it go SB past MP 22.5 around 2 am then heard it head back a couple hours later. Can tell by the sound of a single geep as power (must have had 4632). This is almost a daily event now.

Last night there was another 513 local out of Pontiac, this time with 5930 (its second trip on the Holly yesterday as it powered 515 too). It went SB past MP 22.5 at around 10 pm.

Right after 513 was 502 SB past my house.
