L533S has finished working Mount Clemens and will head back to Port Huron. Mount Clemens is now the southern terminus for this daily symbol with the intermodal being pulled. Manifest freight that was normally dropped at East Yard now goes to Tunnel Yard in PH. The MTC sub now has no intermodal traffic for the first time in nearly 30 years (Q140 and Q141 established in May, 1990). Train counts remain the same, however, without the intermodal.

OK, that's why I saw them switching with GTW GP38-2 #4929 solo recently!!!! I thought that local train 524 came back! At least a GTW Local works to Mt. Clemens once again! :D Man, that's why I haven't seen train 533 and its "Double Stack" trains since Sunday May 5th!!!!!!!!!! Does anyone here have the date for the "Last" train 533 with intermodal? I will miss that train's different power sets over the years! Now, the intermodal to Ferndale must now use the "High Wye" at Durand!!!! That is alright!!!! :wink: Does anyone here have some photos of this new train? :?:

Train 515 is SB past MP 22.5 at 9:25 am with 5456 again today. It had the platform car on the rear, which it doesn't every day. I presume when it does it has some long backup move but cannot figure out where and why only once in a while.

Manistique, is this
"Platform Car" that modern thing called a "Shoving Platform" and used as a caboose made from an old "Flatcar?" :?:

Train 515 NB just past MP 22.5 at 1:30 pm after a short day on the Holly and Mount Clemens subs today. Platform car was on the rear end.

And regarding the "platform" or "shoving" car, I have never seen it close, just the top of the handrails as it goes through the ditch behind my house. I presume it looks like a flat car with platforms on the end and a lot of handrails so a crew can ride on it safely instead of hanging onto the grab irons of a freight car for a long shove move.

Train 514 is NB passing MP 22.5 with 4916 and 5459 on its way back to Flint with containers at 8:11 pm.

Train 391 is NB passing MP 22.5 at 9:25 pm. It has two CN's and a lot of racks tonight and a longer train than usual. It is out ahead of Amtrak, which is 1.5 hours late tonight into Pontiac.

Train 371 NB past MP 22.2 at 12:12 pm.

Two lite road units just drifted SB past MP 22.5 at 3 pm. Maybe power from 116 this morning? Maybe an extra container train out of Moterm on the Holly today?

Train 515 NB returning to Pontiac just went past MP 22.5 at 3:55 pm with 36 cars.
