Wb by 205 at 2048. I would guess its 451 but if so he's lost a couple units on the trip. Sounded like 1st 2nd and 4th unit were online pulling hard. Long train but I missed the axle count.

Around 4 am a SB went past MP 22.5. I presume it was 116. There has not been an "extra" container train on the Holly that I have seen in months. That weekly international one from Prince Rupert has seemed to stop running.

At 7:30 am a SB 280 went by with two former CSX lease units as power. There has been a lot of 280-type all autorack trains lately on the Holly.

At 4:30 pm or so another Train 280 went SB past MP 22.5 on the Holly with a single BNSF locomotive. That is the only freight train I saw so far today out back.

At 9 pm Train 391 went NB past MP 22.5 with a BNSF locomotive leading a CN one right behind a late running Amtrak 353.

Late Report:

A number of trains ran on the Holly last night.

The usual 502 went SB out of Pontiac around 9 pm.

I heard another SB around 2 am or so. I presume it was 116.

At 3 am or so what sounded like a light engine (geep) went SB. I presume 513 venturing south of Pontiac for something, maybe work at Moterm?

And, unless I was dreaming, another SB went by at some point.
