Train 515 was passing East Yard in Detroit NB around 10:30 am with 5456 shoving its train NB on the MC Sub. with that shoving/platform care leading with two crew members on board. I finally saw how they use the shoving platform car: They head south onto the Shoreline Sub. at MILW Jct. instead of the train rounding the Sugar House wye. Then they shove the train all the way to the industries at 7 Mile Road and 8 Mile Road, I guess to avoid running around the train to switch those industries up there. Then the locomotive is on the correct end for the return trip.

Train 371 went past MP 22.5 at around 2:30 pm with two 5600/5700's as power.

Train 515 just went NB past MP 22.5 with a long train including a half dozen autoracks for the first time I have seen. A lot of unusual cars for this train that I looked like they were off the Conrail interchange in East Yard.

Train 514 followed Amtrak 355 down the Hill around 6 pm with the same two SD60's.

And at 8:42 pm Train 514 is NB passing my house headed back to Flint.

Amtrak 355 with two Chargers again was a bit late out past my house and was moving slowly around 6 pm.

About five minutes later returning Train 515 went NB with 5456 and a decent-sized train heading back to Pontiac and it passed Train 514 with 5446 and 5459 and a few containers slowly following Amtrak SB in my back yard. Three SD60's out back at one time.

NB 514 is passing MP 22.5 on its way back to Flint at 8:18 pm.
