Around 9:30 am I heard a SB pass my house but didn't see it (was in the basement). This may have been local train 515 out of Pontiac, running ahead of Amtrak 353. The last few days it has had GT4900 as power. GT 5930 still is assigned to Pontiac as a local locomotive.

Last night around 1 am a NB went by that sounded like 5930 from the engine sound and horn so probably a returning 513. It was short.

Around 4 am a SB went by. My guess from the earlier post of 116 that it was 116 but didn't get up to see.
