Didn’t see the engines at Pontiac Yard so they must be on the road. All the loaded center beams are gone so the Warren Local is one of the trains.

Also, one box car and center beam at the Pontiac lumber trans load.

Train 514 with GP38-2 4916 today and SD 60 5459 again SB past MP 22.5 at 5:08 pm with a few containers.

NB 514 working its guts out up Birmingham Hill with the GP barking and the SD screaming at 7:13 pm with a long train of containers.

Train 391 went NB past MP 22.5 at 8:45 pm with two CN's and a rather long and mixed freight: Only two autoracks and the rest a good mix of tanks, boxcars, short covered hoppers (inluding WC, which I haven't seen in a while) and jumbo covered hoppers (rarely see these on the Holly). Plus some coiled steel cars and gondolas with snap track.

Train 515 returning to Pontiac passed MP 22.5 at 3:15 pm.

Amtrak 355 is running about 15 minutes late out of Pontiac again. No 514 yet, maybe will follow Amtrak.

And here is 514 with 4916 and 5459 again SB passing MP 22.5 very slowly with more than the usual number of containers for the SB leg. Probably on Amtrak's block.

Train 391 NB with two CN's past MP 22.5 at 7:39 pm. Today it had a single loaded coal car on the headend. Yesterday it had two. Odd load on the Holly.

If it's coal there's a place in Saginaw that transloads an occasional carload of coal.

If it's landscaping stone it might be for the place in Waterford.

I photographed two trains today, June 7! Southbound 385 with two CN SD75Is, #5705/5735, 153 cars, cleared Masonic Road, Fraser, 6:21 p.m. Later, northbound 384 with two CN C44-9Ws, #2630/2508, 124 cars, cleared Utica Road, Fraser, at 8:14 p.m. Before this train a white Dodge Ram pick up "Blasted" train horns heading south Utica and turned going south on Groesbeck!!!! :shock: I know I have heard this "Doofus" before!!!! Now, I noticed on "Heritage Units" that northbound 382 had EMDX SD70AH-T4 #1606!!!! :shock: :shock: It was not leading, but I am hoping it will come back tomorrow on southbound train 383! What are the chances? I have never seen any of these new EMD "Demonstrators!!!!" :shock: :shock:
Update: per Facebook® "Tim's Railfan Group" by James Deeds, 10:01 p.m.: "382 terminates in Sarina, power off 382 usually goes to 501 or 330."

"Heritage Units" link (382 spotted by Conrail1, Mt. Clemens, 6/7/2019 10:34 AM): https://heritageunits.com/locomotive/detail/EMDX1606
Here is a photo of EMDX 1606 (photo © Jeffrey Streiff, 4/14/2017, Saint Paul, MN): Image
