383 is likely on its way south, or will be soon. I saw it from the freeway overpass, on the Mt. Clemens Sub, but not moving (or not moving very fast). They may still be putting it back together. Prior to my heading out to run other errands, the scanner chatter hadn't been helpful in determining what the plan for reassembling and getting 383 out of town was, so I was a little surprised to see it just sitting on the Mt Clemens Sub.

383 was massive! Through New Haven at 16:53, moving rather slowly. 180 cars long with DPU CN 8016 about 100 cars in. No wonder why it took so long to get moving and out of the tunnel.

Here's the video link of train 371 with 108 cars yesterday by KC8RBK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNCI2PrgYug
Well, it is even "Rarer" getting SOO painted SD60 "Lease Engines!!!!" I searched all 21 of these owned by CEFX!!!! Only five exist in SOO paint!!!! :shock: They are #6002, 6006, 6007, 6011 and 6020!!!! Two of them in 2019 HAHA!!!!!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: It's said in the photo link that these are being "Returned to their leased owner!" Were these "Leased" by CN? Another photo says CN only leased two! I guess these were those "Two SD60s!" Maybe they aren't as "Power Short" if some are going back! Will we see these again in SOO paint?

Here's a photo, ©Noah Williams, of train 371 at Wyondotte, MI, 3-30: https://www.flickr.com/photos/148747074 ... T-27ePGHa#
