We were coming into Royal Oak tonight on the way to "Bluewater® Meeting" and saw Amtrak 355 from a few blocks away! Luckily there was a northbound freight train close!!!! It had CN GP40-2LW #9473, 23 cars of mixed freight! Which train was this? Is it a local to Pontiac? The engine looked fairly good too!!!! :mrgreen: Both were gone just after 6:00 p.m.

Sounds like 383 will hold at Beaubien I think (or it was Vinewood, can't remember now. Whichever comes last!) for Amtrak.
