Train 515 SB past MP 22.5 at 9:41 am, out ahead of Amtrak again today, with blue 5847 as power today, a new locomotive. This one was in Flint yesterday.

And at 9:43 am, black 5827 (I think) with the Budd Car RDC just went NB past MP 22.5. Must have passed 515 at Opdyke Road.

My second Mount Clemens Sub report ever: At 9:40 pm what used to be a WB (headed towards Detroit) crossed 8 mile with three CN locomotives and 139 cars. The MC Sub trains are very different than the Holly Sub ones. A lot of very mixed freight car types of every kind.
