As far as I know, CSX operations through Holly ended yesterday. But maybe they will be running the usual Flint/Port Huron turn if you want to see CSX today.

Yup, turned out CSX or LSRC did not run any trains yesterday, 3-30! :cry: However, the LSRC will "Commence" operations today, 3-31!!!! :mrgreen:

At Port Huron:

399 just out of tunnel with CN 8853, CN 2534, IC 2456. F/F/R.

148 next up to go through the tunnel, followed by 397 coming west.

383 with CN 2229, CN 2180, GECX 7336 F/F/F broke apart coming through the tunnel earlier this morning, creating something of a backup on both sides.
