Southbound 116? by Linden at 8:45am with CN 5698, 1 other CN unit, and 1 IC unit, 138 cars. First 50 or so were all double stacks, then a LONG string of empty autoracks with a few loaded centerbeams mixed in, then general freight.

If this was 116, it was very later. I will monitor the scanner and maybe I'll get lucky and hear what train this is.

Thankful I am working from home and can railfan a bit on top of it when a train rolls by.

Everyone stay safe and healthy.

LANG IS OUT.

Hey GTW Chris and others:

Did anyone see this train? Sure looked like 116 to me.

Heard on the scanner dispatcher talking to 148 maybe around 10:30 or so, telling him to work instructions in Flint.

This would make 2 trains, both of which are high priority, very late in the order of 6 to 8 hours late for example.

I wonder if CV-19 is to blame?
