Empty sand train (except for one car in the middle it looked) NB past MP 22.5 at 9:21 pm with a single CN zebra striped cowl as power. It may be 391 as it had its usual engineer.

I caught 391 at Williams Lake Rd. at 11:50 PM. CN 2451 solo.had the empty sand as Manistique states above but also had a big chunk of intermodal containers at the back. (picked up at Pontiac.) That intermodal tossed me for a loop. was not sure what train that was till the dispatcher referred to them as 391.
391 will meet 116 at Holly.

Not sure what took so long, but that weird 391 just got to East Lansing at 3:30.
It did have the usual string of empty lumber cars, so it looked like a typical 391 with the sand cars ahead, and stacks behind. The single car in the middle of the sand hoppers was a coil car.

391 met at least 2 eastbounds at Shaftsburg.

Had 81 cars going into Pontiac. 80 sand cars and the coil car.

Its a good sized train leaving Pontiac now with the cars 513 and 515 brings in for it. Typically its been very small leaving Toledo in 2019.

This operation has reverted back to the way it was a number of years ago, where one of the two daily Pontiac-based locals that worked Detroit would grab intermodals at Moterm on its way back to Pontiac for the evening westbound manifest freight to Chicago to pick up and fill out with.

Locomotive 5456 is wearing its evening hat drifting light SB past MP 22.5 at 5:17 pm as Train 513 presumably to haul doublestacks back to Pontiac tonight.
