Amtrak 350 into Pontiac was pretty much on time today and had a locomotive on each end again for some reason. Same with its leaving as 355: on time and two locomotives.

Recap of the last hour or so by 205. Just now 2 bnsf orange units power light headed for battle creek, both units long hood forward. 365 was by around 9. Maybe 830or so a short rack train was by with former up power, couldn't tell if it was one unit or 2.

At 9:20 am Train 515 with IC 6200 SB past MP 22.5.

At 9:35 am a NB freight with a CN leading a CSX elephant style was NB past MP 22.5. Short train. Early 371 or one of those occasional Flat Rock extras?

At 9:50 am lite SD40 5930 went NB past MP 22.5. Must have been 513 from last night that ventured on the Holly south of Pontiac.

This should be train 382!!!! The leader is a GECX C40-8W #73XX (CSX YN3 paint), 2 CN engines (third is CN SD75I #5661), 156 cars! I got this in the snow at 25 Mile Road, Chesterfield Township.

Returning Train 515 past MP 22.5 at 3:13 pm with IC 6200 and close to 40 cars from local industries including a lot of short hicubes and covered coiled steel cars again.

Amtrak 350 just went NB past MP 22.5 almost two hours late today. It had a locomotive on either end (maybe to quicken its turnaround time in Pontiac as 355 due to its tardiness so often lately?), four coaches and a baggage car. I wonder why they have an extra locomotive sitting at Pontiac depot if they don't use it for 350/355's turnaround?

And Amtrak 355 left Pontiac on time with a locomotive on both ends.

What I presume is 371 was NB past MP 22.5 with a leased ex-BNSF unit and a CSX one (also leased?) and a very short train at 6:20 pm, a bit late for this train.

Headed back west at 1227. Moving slow compared to the last pass probably because its following another train fairly close.
