Had a semi vs. train accident on Utica Road in Fraser around 5:30pm. This would have delayed things on the Mt. Clemens Subdivision.

Last night had a SB passing MP 22.5 around 2:40 am. It was a long train and I am presuming it was 116. A short time later what sounded like a light geep went SB.

Just now, at 7:17 am, 4916 is crawling up the Hill NB at MP 22.5 with a train that has mostly covered hoppers. They seemed to be more the grain kind than chemical like the Holly locals usually have, including a CNW marked one. Must have been 513 and the light locomotive I heard last night returning.

Train 515 followed Amtrak 353 down the hill around 10:35 am with two locomotives again, I presume the same two as yesterday (4916 and 5930) but I missed catching the numbers.

Train 451 was NB past MP 22.2 at 12:40 pm with two UP's leading two CN's and two CSX locomotives.

Train 515 passed MP 22.2 at 11:45 am. Looked like only one locomotive today but didn't see it well.

There was what I would call a Train 950 today out of Pontiac, a local like before they discontinued it. It followed 515 down the Hill by an hour or so. It had 5930 as power.

That Train 950 reported above went NB returning to Pontiac at 4:20 pm with a half dozen cars.

M382 by Mount Clemens depot at 12:28. CN/CN, 134 cars. Very large loaded grain block on the head end, chemical tanks, and some CSX coal loads. Added bonus - a pristine green MKT little 2 bay hopper hiding in the mix...
