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?
This locomotive, 5852, just drifted NB past MP 22.5 lite at 6:30 pm, whatever its job was, it being done. Probably a yard job out of Pontiac, like an old 513.

M384 through New Haven at 20:02. CN 2678, 2276, 5721, & 2586 with 91 cars. I love the sound of a K3L horn on a quiet night. It’s very calming. :D
