Train 251 I presume (running a bit late) is NB passing MP 22.5 at 6:50 pm with a BNSF leading a UP and two CN's, all roaring away to bring the train to the crest of Birmingham Hill. Must be a long train.

CN 2222, 2141, 3835, 3175, & 5757. Yes, A482 with just Sarnia-bound traffic. The rest of the mixed freight consist would be put on a different train in Sarnia to head to Toronto normally...

Where is
"The J" unit working? Is it just sitting in Pontiac when not on 515? I will keep watch on this page tomorrow Manistique.
I don't know about the EJE locomotive.
Turns out I have a meeting at Church tomorrow morning so I will not be home to watch for 515 for you while there. Sorry.
OK, we went to Ferndale yesterday afternoon! Saw Amtrak® 350 with "Chargers" locomotives (4625 led) and never heard anything about "EJE 657!!!!"
We left around 4:30 p.m. since it seemed nothing was happening!!!!! :cry: Does anyone know what
"The J" unit was doing Saturday Feb 15?

Dont get all worried - it was still sitting in Pontiac this afternoon. 515 is using the CN 5459 as its primary engine currently.

Best chance to see 515 is Monday-Friday. They have a very steady schedule those days.

The rest of the local jobs in Pontiac are usually assigned off the extra board and work well after dark.
