Train 116 SB past MP 22.5 on the Holly at 7 am with two CN's and mixed freight front and rear. I bet 116 is making a pickup at Pontiac now, thus the split mixed freight. A lot of loaded scrap this morning on either end and some scrap does come out of Pontiac.

At 1940, eastbound autoracks with a CN SD75I and PRLX 200 were between West Flint and Torrey Yard. At 1948, 502 was ready to go down the Holly from Durand. CN 2116 leading. They would be waiting for 371 which was approaching Pitt.

Was the 3rd unit a cowl body? If so, the blue unit was IC 2456 and the 3rd unit was CN 2432. I saw them come through the yard in Port Huron around noon (could've been anywhere between 1100 and 1300) today, but we didn't have the scanner on, so I don't know which train it was. I'd be interested to find out which train it was as it had 4 empty frame flats when it came out of the tunnel (empty frame flats typically only go east).

I did notice the flats so it was the same train.

A rack train went SB past MP 22.5 at midnight last night. Let's call it a 280.

At 5 am 116 went through SB. Didn't get up to see it but figured it was from the next report below.

At 7 am the power from 116 (single EMD) drifted NB backwards to Pontiac so 116 must have just been all containers today.

365 by 205 at 0912. 58 leading, 62 on the rear. Running kinda slow this morning maybe because of icy rails.
