It appears I was wrong about the Southbound I mentioned a few hours ago - ATCS had one line up going South around the Chicago Wye, but must have been a train backing into the yard at Durand and needed the Chicago Wye to do so.

Anyway, I see Jason posted there is a 280 coming - that for sure will be a Southbound for the Holly.

Wb manifest with 2 cn by 205 at 1225. Maybe 1/3 of the way back an 8 axle flat car with some kind of big metal tank on it. I'll put video of it up shortly but excuse the quality. I saw it coming across the swamp and had to grab my camera from the other side of the house and run out the back door to get it :lol:

Hey Jason / Others - you have a Northbound (soon to be Westbound) CN train 371 with 114 autoracks and one boxcar mixed in for good measure, for 115 cars. 10,000+ feet. Didn't catch the engine numbers. By Linden at 5pm.

Note - never saw that 280 from this morning and have been home all day. Does anyone know if a 280 symbol sometimes goes to Flint for GM?

Southbound 280 with 67 autoracks, by Linden at 7pm. Too dark for engine numbers.

Another train just went by on the Holly Sub, Northbound this time by Linden at 7:37pm.

Not sure what it was, too dark.

EDIT - well my best guess is an early 391 because he is lined around the Chicago Wye to head West and 371 has already been by today. Its either that or an extra of some kind.

Just heard the dispatcher talking to a 251. I heard it twice with Engine CN 5797.

I remember a 251 symbol from LONG ago - back in the 90s I would say.

Anyone know about this train? I wonder if he came North on the Holly?

Thanks.

Yeah, I saw it on the railcam go straight across the diamonds eastbound in Durand.

Short-ish northbound autorack train with a CN and a BNSF for power. Got on the Flint Sub heading west at 8:02pm.

391 doesn't run anymore. It was replaced by L591 in September. 591 and 502 seem to run very late at night now.

There is more than one symbol for autoracks on the Flint Subdivision beside the 280s. 260, 270, 276, 280, 296, etc...

They have been listed on the Wiki section on here under the CN pages. I would expect the autoracks to be running out of sync as GM gets back into normal operations after the strike.

Extra autoracks coming up from Flat Rock arent uncommon anymore either. Intermodal extras also. A pair of 149s ran today, Q149 and an X149.

Looks like from Jason's Railfan Live Cam site, ATCS shows a Northbound (going by me now) lined north into Durand, around the High Wye then Eastbound.

That would be 514 and he just went by me, clear Linden at 10:20pm.

148 by 205 at 0013 with 2 cn. Could potentially be 116 as well since it's a little early and I haven't seen a 116 yet
