Another wb by 205 at 2325. Looked like 1 unit, maybe 2 but both facing forward. Had some empty wells at the head end. Moving pretty slow in the heels of the last one.

149 was through Lansing just before 05:00.

They just got a high wind warning from the dispatcher. Must slow to 20mph


Another westbound just through Lansing at 05:30, presumably 399.

Does 505 originate on the Holly / Shoreline Subs, or does this train come from Pt. Huron?

Thanks.

OS 514 past MP 22.5 at 7:55 pm at 35 mph with that 38 barking up the Hill drowning out the turbocharger of the 60.

Thanks.

My understanding is that L505 originates in Sarnia and terminates in Battle Creek. At least a few times the past few months, it has originated in Flint instead, and been called X505.

A 280 with some mixed freight just went SB past MP 22.5 on the Holly at 5:20 am.

I heard another SB at around 6:10 am but didn't see it. Followed Amtrak 351 out of Pontiac. Maybe 116?

Train 515 with 5456 was SB past MP 22.5 at 9:22 am.

Amtrak 353 is about 20 minutes late going by my house. Mustn't have left Pontiac yet.

Train 371 with a BNSF leading four CN's is passing MP 22.5 at 3:17 pm.

And as 371 races up on Main 2, Train 515 is passing it on Main 1 going a bit faster. A race to reach Pontiac Yard!
