Caught the westbound NS freight at Ypsilanti at 725am this morning, ~29 cars with a pair of SD40-2s. First time I've caught a freight in Ypsi in probly 6 or 7 years.

121 clear Willow Rd. at 2:29. Apparently meeting a 52X in Milan, I have no idea what kind of train that is.

29M EB by Romulus about 130. ES44DC and ES44AC and 17 Mixed. Had to stop at the next signal East of the junction presumably to let 121 cross over coming out of Oakwood.

121 WB by Romulus, 2 C44-9W’s and 43 Mixed shortly after 3, they had to stop for a moment before getting a signal for the diamond.
