A weekend Train 515 went SB past MP 22.5 around 1:30 pm today, a bit later than usual. It had 5930 as power again.

Train 391 NB past MP 22.5 at 7:42 pm.

At 8:42 pm lite 5930 drifted south past MP 22.5. Train 513, I presume, is working the south Holly again tonight.

I didnt catch the engine number when it went by. They weren't using the whistle by here so I had no warning it was coming. I believe it's currently over by Bancroft following that other train.

Wb by 205 at 1236. Cn leading 2 x csx. A couple long cuts of covered hoppers in the train.
