They ended up being GMTX 2274 - GTW 6420 - CN 5779. Set off their train at Beachville, and 331 lifted their power to Sarnia

NB passed MP 22.5 at 11:30 am. CN 8894, BNSF 290, CN 2812 and CN 5782 so finally plenty of power for the Hill and if it is a reroute and went through the Detroit River Tunnel . A shorter train with mixed stuff on the headend (including those bulkhead flats with what I presume is aluminum ingots on them) and autoracks on the tail end. Maybe Train 371 with some rerouted stuff?

Intermodal reroute was working Moterm at 11am. CN 3044 and CN 3816.

It was supposed to recrewed at Scott Lake Road, but it might end up being at Moterm.

It is going NB by MP 22.5 at 1:42 pm.

Train 515 is NB past MP 22.5 at 2:40 pm with its usual mix of local freight.

No Amtrak 350 yet. Edit: 350 went by a bit late with two Chargers.

Possible M391 turning north on to the Holly Sub at Milwaukee Junction at 2009. CN 3143 and CN 3109. Lead engine is stopped on Clay Ave for some reason.

Train 514 with 5459 and BLE 878 NB passing MP 22.5 at 9:10 pm working hard up the Hill at 35 mphl with the SD38 really barking. I could hear it coming a mile away.

At 9:21 pm right behind 514 is what I presume is 391 (as reported earlier at Milwaukee Junction) passing MP 22.5 NB. Going very slow and not working hard. Maybe congestion at Pontiac Yard? It does have truck frames on flat cars on the headend, which is not typical Holly Sub consist, so maybe it is a reroute or combined train.

L533S working Mount Clemens yard (FCA/Metro) at 22:30. Got a feeling they won't make it home tonight without running into some interference.

CN 3196 & 3891 (this seemed to have a different logo on the long hood.)

I didn’t see anything working Pontiac Yard so I’m presuming it’s on the road probably towards Detroit

Yes, 515 with what looked like 5456 again went SB past MP 22.5 at 9:15 am.

Both Amtrak 351 and 353 had two P42's again today in push/pull set up. 351 had six cars again and 353 is back to its usual 5. 353 leaves Pontiac about 15 minutes earlier now starting last Monday.

M383 by Mount Clemens depot at 06:35, CN/CN, 79 cars. Looked to be carrying mostly chemical tanks and hoppers (Sarnia traffic). Guessing the last of the reroutes were still running around the region when the tunnel reopened, and the restored routes are not quite yet back to normal.

Yes, turned out this was a re-route, M369 via Toledo, not M391.
