Busy early morning on the South Holly. At 3:20 am two SB's, one on each main, passed MP 22.5 together. Not too common an event. One was 116 and the other may have been a sand train. And at 4:20 am another SB went by.

Train 515 out of Pontiac went SB past MP 22.5 at 10:10 am, following Amtrak 353, with the usual 5459 as power running backwards (which is also fairly usual lately) and a medium-sized train.

There are red boards up lately on Main 1 at MP 22.2. Amtrak seems to get permission to breeze through it but freights are down to 10 mph. Not sure where they are working or what they are doing on or along Main 1.

SB Train 514 is passing MP 22.5 right now at 5 pm with the dynamic duo again (5413 and faded 5340) and some of containers today.

And at 5:10 pm, Train 515 just flew past MP 22.5 at 60 mph NB heading back to Pontiac with a decent-sized train of mostly empty boxcars and centerbeams with 5459 as power.
