Wb manifest by 205 at 1310. 3 cn, 3rd unit showing some fire damage. 2023, I dont remember noticing that feature last it was by here so it may be pretty recent. One of the doors below the exhaust was still open exposing its guts.

514 SB past MP 22.5 at 5:53 pm with the usual two SD60's and just a few cars of containers. Going very slow for some reason, maybe on Amtrak's 355's block if on Main 1.

Train 514 north is stopped out back at MP 22.5 at 9:35 pm after following 391 closely up the Hill. Maybe because with 502, 280 (third one today) and 391 all in Pontiac right now there is now room for 514 to get by them in the new, small Pontiac Yard to get to Flint? Just like the old days if so and, if so, I imagine 391's crew will take 502 south and clear up a track shortly for 514 to go north.

And while this is all going on, a light 4912 just went SB past 514 on Main 2 at 9:55 pm, probably as Train 513 tonight.

10:15 pm update: What looks like that 280 with UP power is flying SB past MP 22.5 on Main 2 and the still stopped 514. Now 514 is on the move NB.

And at 10:41 Train 502 is SB past NP 22.5. The Pontiac traffic jam is cleared up.

An unusual morning NB just passed MP 22.5 with two CN and two BNSF. Maybe that extra out of Flat Rock they run once in a while? 256? Looked like a lot of head-end cars were the type 371 sets off in Pontiac for the locals. Not many autoracks. Shorter train.

At 10:05 am Train 515 with 5456 was SB past MP 22.5. They snuck out just in front of Amtrak 353 leaving Pontiac.

I read in another areas on this board that a new Amtrak Charger locomotive is sitting at the Pontiac depot for a training purposes.

514 went south by Pittsburg Road (south of Durand) at 4:32pm. GTW 4900 and CN 5459, plus two wells. Following it was a 502 like manifest (minus the autoracks), which went through Gaines at 4:42pm.
