Must have been one of the moves I heard last night as one of the trains sounded like lite locomotives. It must have been an extra container train to Moterm yesterday that they came off of and maybe they will be powering one tonight NB on the Holly.


Q189 intermodal extra ran tonight, CN 3809, CN 2264 Tail End DPU.

A 280ish, all autorack train with two BNSF locomotives went SB past MP 22.5 on the Holly at 9:15 am.

Amtrak trains in and out of Pontiac still have seven cars, two more than usual, except the 350/355 turn which never went more than five during the holidays.

Eb by 205 at 0955. Single cn unit and 6 or 8 cars. Sounds like they're working in Charlotte yet again today. No idea what kind of track work they're doing but it must be pretty involved since they've been there several days now.
