Two lite locomotives just drifted SB past MP 22.5. Must be an extra container train out of Moterm tonight.

CN 2116 and GT GP9 4619 (both narrow nosed and elephant style) NB past MP 22.5 at 8 pm with Train 391.

Train 513 (I presume) with 6223 is NB past MP 22.5 at 8:23 pm.

Train 116 is following Amtrak 351 down the Hill, passing MP 22.5 at 6:17 am. Some mixed on it. Short train.

Train 515 with IC 6200 again today is SB passing MP 22.5 at 9:37 am with its dynamic breaks on to check its speed down the Hill.

BC Rail 4612 and an 8900 are leading Train 371, which is flying NB past MP 22.5 as I write this at 1:44 pm.

Train 515 returning to Pontiac with 36 cars, mostly empty centerbeams, passing MP 22.5 NB at 5:57 pm.

Double green signal at Raven for two northbounds. Will update once they pass!

Amtrak 352 through Royal Oak at 20:29 with engine 57. This is a non-ITCS engine. All of the ITCS Engines must be dying or they are adding ITCS a to new engines

M391 North flying through Royal Oak with almost entirely 2 bay hoppers at 20:37 with a CN Dash 9, CN SD75I, BNSF SD70ACe and UP SD70ACe

A BCOL C40-8M in BCOL paint and a CN Gevo lite through Royal Oak southbound at 21:20 to pick up an intermodal train at Moterm

Looks like a 513 was headed south past MP 22.5 at 9 pm with lite IC 6200 soon after Amtrak 352 and CN 391 cleared Pontiac.

I caught 391 at Williams Lake Rd. at about 11:25 PM still had a fair number of 2 bay hoppers on the tail end.

CN 2541
CN 5774
BNSF
UP
CN
I was not quick enough to get numbers on the last three.

as I was typing this up a second northbound cleared the detector MP 34.2 at 11:58 PM, 440 axles. I am guessing this to be that intermodal Bnsfben referred to above.

The power on 515 today was blue 4912 and it was flying past MP 22.5 on its way back to Pontiac like a horse headed back to the barn at 5:36 with a rather long train of mostly empty centerbeams.

I caught 116 at Williams Lake Rd at 1:10 AM. All autoracks in front of the intermodal. Was beginning to think it was a 280.

CN 5636
CN 5646? (Not sure I recall correctly)

I heard the horn of the train while I was at home this morning. I lives in Waterford also. MP. 32 is between Frembes and William Lake roads.
