Second unit was probably 4032 picked up at Lansing. The 2nd unit at Howell this morning was 2028, which returned east on D708, now paired with 8400.

N800-16 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like BNSF 8456 leading. This is the fourth train in the last couple of hours, as P370 met Q327 and E800 on the double track between Riverside and Benton Harbor earlier this evening.

N800 loaded coal train at Charles Street, Bangor mp CG60.78 @ 00:02:34 with BNSF #8456 leading + 1 & 126 cars. The 2nd engine was black on top, silver mid-section, & black on the bottom - think we've seen this one before a while back - Illinois Central? Tried reading it in slow motion & couldn't.

It's a BNSF cream and green, from the BN days.

Thank you, very nice picture. The one I had seen had the BNSF lettering with a line under it like in this image I had found:

RE BNSF SD70MACs: That's how almost all of them look now. None of them have the old BN logo anymore.

Y106 EB at Fox a few minutes ago with a GP40-3 and 3 boxcars, no tanks.

That large machinery load is going to the LSRC at Wixom.
