Yeah, I saw that 514 lite engine move too. Didn't post it (can't post all the time anyway) b/c I just came in from doing some work outside the house - couldn't resist how nice a day it was outside! Gotta be close to record temps today for December 26th.

Busiest 24 hours or so that I can remember in a while on the MTC sub, from Christmas night to Boxing Day night, 14 trains - including the book-ended locals in each direction - 515/533. A number of extra manifests, including the regulars and a 271 train. More quiet today...

Looks like this very same train managed to wildly end up breaking apart in Fenton: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=36933

Train 251 (formerly 371) is NB passing MP 22.5 at 4:12 pm with seven CN locomotives (not all running), about 30 to 40 cars for Pontiac on the headend, and what seems to be a very long train of mostly autoracks behind them.

Thanks Manistique for the 251 report. I will keep an eye out.

Heard the dispatcher also talking to a Northbound 514 out there somewhere too unless I missed him.

Just saw an odd train SB passing MP 22.5 at 4:50 pm. GTW 5852 solo with a train of about 20 cars, about half autoracks and the tail-end flats that looked like for truck frame loading (which we never see anymore on the Holly, loaded or unloaded, since the Pontiac truck plant closed in 2009) and some mixed freight, mostly boxcars. Maybe it was the tail-end of that 280 that split in Fenton today?

Just passed MP 22.5 with two SD60's and a fair number of doublestacks for its SB run at 5:25 pm, out in front of Amtrak 355.
