398 is at Bancroft, so that was them. CN 8000 and 5745. CN 8879 is the DPU.

The E296 had CSXT 5457 and 705. They are now going to Durand to grab 44 cars and return to Flint.

502 is done in the yard at Durand. They will wait for 398 before getting on their train. 32 cars setout, and 49 (45 by 4) heading toward Pontiac.

Returning Train 515 NB flying past MP 22.5 with 5930 again at 5:37 pm, trying to not get stabbed by the soon to be departing Amtrak 355.

Someone reported this a while ago but I will update it: I drove by Pontiac yard this afternoon and it is full of empty center beams being stored, I presume. The new- housing market must be cold.

Train 515 SB past MP 22.5 at 11:10 am with 5930 again today.

Train 451 with a former CSX leading a CN 5600 NB past MP 22.5 at 1:33 pm.

Train 515 with 5930 returning to Pontiac flying NB past MP 22.5 with the turbocharger whistling away at 5:54 pm. What a nice sound those SD40's made working hard and running fast.

Late report: A 280 type train was SB passing old Yellow Cab signal on the south side of Pontiac at around 2:30 pm this afternoon. Just saw the tail end from the overpass.
