A sand train (Train 765?) just went SB past MP 22.5 with three or four CN's as power and a little longer than usual train. Why does this train rate so much power always? I know sand is heavy but coal trains only had two locomotives usually when on the Holly. And the sand trains are not that long.

Looks like a significant number of trains around Durand right now (19:20). An L505-type train just worked the yard and departed westbound on Main 2 (CN 5714, CN 8904). If I've been following ATCS correctly, M371 just came north from Pitt (where GLC may be waiting), there is at least one (and possibly two) eastbounds waiting on Main 1 between Bancroft and Clara, there is a westbound waiting on Main 1 between Durand and East Durand, and another westbound approaching between East Durand and Flint.

CREX 1516 leading four or five CN locomotives on Train 391 is NB passing MP 22.5 at 8:17 pm with a medium-sized train.

Train 514 with BLE 878 leading CN 5459 again just went SB past MP 22.5 at 9:17 pm. Tonight it had a longer train and the first 20 or 25 cars were truck frames on flat cars, the rest containers. I don't think I have ever seen frames heading south on the Holly out of Pontiac before. In the old days they came north to Pontiac for the Yellow Cab truck plant. Now that is closed we never see frames here other than those seen in the reroutes of the Mt. Clemens Sub. recently. And this is the first time 514 has had anything other than containers on its SB run or NB run between Pontiac and Moterm. I wonder where they are going and who is going to pick them up at Moterm?

M383 through Belle River Valley at 00:05. CN/CN and a CN DPU about half way back in a 10,000' plus train. Doing 50 per through the basin. The Crawford intermediate signal is the solid only hint of light in the pitch black hills tonight.
