This might have been an extra out of Moterm. I wasn't home last night to observe but before I left two light road locomotives went south from Pontiac, usually a sign of an extra container train out of there a few hours later. Why only one locomotive on it at Lansing, who knows?

And 371 went past MP 22.5 at 3:15 pm.

Amtrak 350 just went by MP 22.5 on the Holly at 3:37 pm (an hour late) with a Charger locomotive as its sole power. First Charger powered train into Pontiac. We will see if the Charger that was on view in Pontiac takes 355 back. I bet it does as 353 had a locomotive on each end and that Charger might be the only locomotive in Pontiac (and it is facing the right way). The Charger was very quiet compared to the GE's. More like a turbo train.

Train 515 just flew NB past MP 22.5 at 3:42 pm right on Amtrak 350's tail with 19 cars.

Train 514 with 4916 and 5459 and one container SB past MP 22.5 at 4:53 pm.

Amtrak 355 left Pontiac with two Chargers, one on each end. The leading was the one that has been on view in Pontiac for the past week, 4612, and the trailing was 4630 that brought 350 in today.

OK MtClemensRailFan, there is no "BCOL 2652" engine! It must be "4652!!!!"
