Eastbound with CN 2334 & 2179 through East Lansing at 03:35. This was the 2nd train tonight with a mix of stacks and freight. I assume one was 116, not sure about the other. This one was mostly autoracks.

Two lite locomotives just went SB past MP 22.5 at 5:30 pm. I presume power for 514 though they were the usual dynamic two we have been seeing lately on this train.

R149, CN 5729 leading. going west on the Flint Subdivision.

Likely something different due to the protesting blockages in Canada.

149 is a reroute. 934 is a local and they used to use K for that train but have redone the numbers lately so I'm not sure about that one. 934 is still the night shift Lansing local.

Does anyone know what route they're taking east for 148/9? I heard 149 came up the holly last night. Did it come from an eastern road from toledo or through the detroit tunnel?

Train 514 NB went by MP 22.5 around 6:30 pm with 5340 leading.

At 7:20 pm a doublestacked SB went by MP 22.5. Maybe a reroute (R148?). Or that occasional international doublestack from Prince Rupert?
