Local Train 515 SB past MP 22.5 at 9:19 am with 5930.

SB autorack 280ish train passing MP 22.5 at 9:54 am, The DS snuck it out ahead of Amtrak 353 in Pontiac. It had at least one UP locomotive and that may have been the only power as it tried to sneak by me and I just got a glimpse of one.

Amtrak 353 had a locomotive on either end today. I didn't notice the baggage car today.

Train 371 with two CNs and a UP as power passing MP 22.5 at 1:05 pm.

Train 515 with 5930 SB past MP 22.5 at 10:31 am.

It went out in front of Amtrak 353, which is posted on the Train Status sight as being 20 minutes behind schedule, meaning it hasn't left Pontiac yet for some reason and it is more than 20 minutes late departing at this point.

Amtrak 353 SB past MP 22.5 at 12:30 pm, a bit more than two-hours late leaving Pontiac.

Lite IC 6200 drifted back to Pontiac at 2 pm past MP 22.5. I heard something head SB around 11:30 and thought it was the tardy Amtrak 353 but it must have been this, maybe a 950 or 513. Maybe it went to do something at Moterm?

Train 371 with three UP locomotives (the first one looked brand new) NB past MP 22.5 around 3 pm.

Amtrak 350 passed MP 22.5 at 3:28 pm with two back to back locomotives again and five cars, a bit late.

And right on Amtrak's tail, hopefully on Main 2, is returning 515 with 5930 at 3:33 pm.

And at 3:48 pm, just after the above mentioned three NB's have cleared, a Train 280 all autoracks is rolling southbound past MP 22.5 with a UP locomotive leading GT (ex-DTI) GP38-2 6221. Busy hour on the Holly south of Pontiac with four trains.

Amtrak 355 just went SB past MP 22.5 with one locomotive. It must have left the second on in Pontiac as the extra/rotation one.
