Eb rack train by 205 at 1818. Looked like 1 unit but I didn't get right to the window. Was watching trains on TV and didn't realize I was hearing one outside too, just thought the sound was awesome!

Eb by 205 at 0026. Cn(ic) leading gecx(x csx). Mixed freight. Wb with the bnsf at 215, another wb following him by okemos. I believe the one at 215 is 451 from what I was hearing on the radio.

That WB with the two BNSF units was probably 391 as it had the same power when it went by my house south of Pontiac earlier in the evening. Funny that it beat 371 past your place as 371 is usually the afternoon WB/NB through here (I wasn't home to see it as I was in Durand for the railroad slide show there). All is quite here at MP 22.5 on the Holly this morning.

What I presume was 371 NB past MP 22.5 at 4 pm with an NS unit leading a CN one.

Around 7 pm a SB all autorack train (280?) went past MP 22.5 with two UP locomotives.
