We were stopped by two northbound trains on the Mt. Clemens Sub. today (3-11)!!!! First train 382 crossed Masonic Road, Fraser, around 11:00 a.m. with two "Regular" CN locos─led by CN SD75I/C40-8Ws, 139 cars!!!! Now after work we were stopped by train 384! It crossed 12 Mile Road, Roseville, 8:11 p.m., with BCOL "Cowl" C40-8M #4625, GECX (ex UP) #9XXX, NS C40-9W #9XXX, 158 cars!!!! I love these "Mixed" consists!!!! :wink:

Also, I did saw the "PTC Test train" near Durand Saturday (3-9) on the Holly Sub.It had the two CN engines bracketing the AC/ICG cabooses!!!! Those cabooses are "Freshly" painted with new logos!!!! I love the Algoma Central® one and the "Black Bear" lives!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

It seems that over the past few months, the trains on the MTC have been running on very abnormal and irregular "schedules", with 384 being the the only real exception of running its normal evening time. Wonder if this will still occur as the weather warms up. :? :?:

BNSF 7560 & a Ferromex unit with an eastbound coal train on main 1 in East Lansing at 00:58.

BNSF 5985 pushing on the rear.
They seem to be slowing for a meet at Okemos, but still no westbound lined up at Trowbridge.

Edit 01:12
148 with CN 2418 & 2165 going through East Lansing on main 2.

Early this morning I heard what seemed to be a light engine NB past MP 22.5. Sounded like a geep. Maybe a 513 returning to Pontiac?

At 5 am a SB went by MP 22.5. Maybe that 116 reported earlier?

Holly Sub last night in Durand:

Q116 went south at 11:38pm, 2 CN's, 121 wells, 20 mixed.

What appeared to be a late or extra 502 switched the yard and departed at 12:38am. 2 CN's, 38 mixed, 20 autoracks. Judging by how slow it was going around the Chicago Wye, it probably met the next train at Pitt.

A large northbound intermodal went through at 2:16am. 1 CN, 1 former UP leaser, and 156 wells.

M391 went north/west at 2:57am. 1 CN, what appeared to be a blue CEFX, another CN, and another CN that appeared to be a former GTW, and 90 cars, over half of which appeared to be sand hoppers.
