Slow going on the MTC sub in the past 36 hours:

L533 at 02:35, CN 5299/IC 9618, and 20 cars.

L533 (second edition today) at 15:00, CN 5299, 3 boxcars. (5299 a very sorry looking zebra that appears to have been in a few battles).

M383 (only manifest since early Monday) at @16:00.

L533N by Mount Clemens depot at 17:30, light engine.

Apparently, the blockades by the indigenous groups in Ontario, as well as the new tank car (hazardous materials) speed restrictions and car limitations per train, are beginning to cause issues on certain manifests coming across the border. Not sure of the effect yet on the Flint sub between PH and Durand, but the MTC sub is extremely slow...
