Right after 513 was 502 SB past my house.

This must be
CN painted GTW SD40-2 #5930!!!! This engine led the 2017 "Santa Train!!!!" I've read that this is the first engine in CN "North America" scheme and the first of GTW engines repainted into "CN!"

Here's a picture I took (Medium Format film) of 2017 "Santa Train" passing Durand station, 12-17-2017 (1st time photographing from this spot):

Belle River valley/basin begins at MTC m.p. 40.0 and ends at m.p. 42.0. It's a .52% descending grade to the Belle River bridge at m.p. 41.33, and a .51% nb ascending grade up onto the Meskill prairie. The top of the grade at Crawford Road is one of the few absolutely level spots on the Mount Clemens subdivision. The south basin trailhead parking lot for the 411 acre Columbus County/Belle River Valley Park is directly adjacent to the tracks at Big Hand Road and is a great railfanning location. And, if you like to hike, follow the Woodland/Mountain trail down into the hills along the river. It's spectacular scenery, with great photogenic views of the railroad and bridge at many locations. This was inaccessible territory up until just a few years back. Then, of course, there is the equally scenic north basin and lodge accessed from Bauman Road. Hope this helps!
