CN 5456 drifted SB lite at 6:10 pm. Presuming it is 513 going to Moterm to bring containers to Pontiac again tonight.

At 6:25 pm a sand train is SB passing MP 22.5 with quite a mix of power including a blue leased unit leading a couple CN's, a CP, and a warbonnet, five engines totals. Not a very long train but always seems to have a lot of power. Haven't seen one in months.

When I came through Charlotte about 10am there was a track crew working in town. Not sure what kind of project they're working on. There has been a slow order for several days now at 201.67, 25mph

Train 371 with a CN leading a BNSF is rolling NB past MP 22.5 at 2:17 pm going slow. I think there is track work being done on the south side of Pontiac, thus the slower speed as he passes.

Anyone around Lansing avoid the crytes rd crossing. One of the bolts holding the wood in the crossing down broke and the tie is sticking way up. It's on the service nb left lane and has been reported. Once they get out here it will cause traffic issues 1500

Returning local 515 was NB past MP 22.5 at 4 pm with 5456 and a long train.

Looks like 5456 was a bit late getting back to Pontiac today to fulfill its duties on the now-daily 513 container extra so GT 4912 got the honors. It just drifted SB lite at 5:20 pm. Should be a good show of that geep pulling the doublestacks NB up the Hill later tonight.

Train 513 with the container train was clawing up the Hill, that non-turbo GP38-2 barking away, you could hear it for miles, passing MP 22.5 at about 20 mph at 7:20 pm with a very long train of containers.

And as 513 was heading north on Main 1, out of nowhere comes 391 NB flying up Main 2 at 60 mph, passing 513 and making it seem it wasn't even moving, with most or all of that mixed power from the sand train yesterday (including the warbonnet) and a very short train.

At 8:29 pm a short SB went by lead by an old CN cowl with mostly sand cars. I presume an early 502 as 391 was early and they swap crews in Pontiac.

Around 10 pm there was another SB past MP 22.5 so not sure if the earlier one was 502 or this one was.

No Amtrak 352 yet that I have seen.
