An eastbound-southbound manifest got onto the Holly Sub in Durand at 10:25pm. Three CN engines for power. I'm assuming this is the former L502, now named A402.

Do they complain when I toot the horn at you when I go by the homestead?? If not, I'll try harder :wink:
My neighbors have to hate me for that too. Many of the crews will give me extra horn to say hello as they pass even in the middle of the night when I'm sleeping :lol:

And as a result of the strike settlement, sounds like the CN Mount Clemens sub, which has been deader than a door nail, is about to get real busy with backed up, parked and staged M380 series trains - in addition to the regulars - running again. Noticed a flurry of activity by workers around control points in Mount Clemens and New Haven proper today...

Driving by one of the parked Canada trains on the Holly in Bloomfield Hills just now, it looks like all of Quebec's propane is sitting there from the many propane tank cars in the train.

I'm assuming these Canada-destined Mt Clemens Sub trains will be going via Durand, using the High Wye, since they've been parked on the Holly Sub?
