Southbound what I believe to be 402 with CN 5413, CN 5450 (514s power lately), with 24 cars of general freight, by Linden at 3:49pm.

I supposed this could be Southbound 514, just general freight today as opposed to intermodal.

Just went by MP 22.5 south of Pontiac lite engines at 5 pm so they dropped their train off in Pontiac. Good use of this train instead it running light the entire way. Only saw it with mixed freight once before.

Anyone know if CN is still running those Coke Trains (715/716?) on the Holly Sub?

I should know I suppose, but since I sleep at night, I don't get a chance to see our night trains and don't know if they are still running or not. I used to hear all the horns when we first moved to Linden, but only hear a few now and again as we are not hearing trains at night anymore unless a particular horn is very loud - about 1/4 mile away but staring to not hear trains anymore - I guess we are just used to them now.

Anyway, I never got a chance to see a Coke Train BTW.

Thanks.
