They seem to be coming from and going to the Conrail interchange at East Yard/North Yard.

Southbound by Linden at 6:36am.

Not sure what train this was, too dark to see, but was fairly long. Could tell it was a mixed freight, but way too late for 116 and 502, definitely not 514 and it was not a 280 type train either, so we are left with a very late 116 or 502, or an extra.

Another mystery train by Linden at 8:10pm, just going by MP 59.9 detector as I type this. Day off work today.

This time it was a Northbound with 240 Axles, that's 57 cars with 2-six axle locos - didn't catch the locomotives.

The only train it could have been is 591, unless it was an extra.

CONFIRMED - just heard the dispatcher talking to 591 coming into Durand. He will be working the yard there per the dispatcher. I "think" the Lead Engine was CN 5691???

If anyone is in Durand, 149 is coming West per dispatcher, should be in Flint right about now.

There were a lot of mystery trains on the Holly south of Pontiac during the early hours before light. Five that I heard. Probably one was that 591 but that was like at 5 am, an odd time for it. At least two other NB's seemed to be lite engine moves. Maybe one was a 513/515 local extra that ran last night to Detroit. Sounded like a geep.

Northbound 591 by Linden at 9:30am and by the detector at 59.9 at 9:40am with 214 Axles.

This train had 5 CN locomotives! Didn't get the engine numbers, 46 cars.

This is a few times I have seen 591 now, and so far he is a daylight morning train, which is nice b/c with these shorter daylight days, 514 North or South, 502 South, 391 North, and 116 South are all in darkness. Usually 116, 502, and 391 will always be in darkness anyway.
