Two trains past MP 22.5 on the Holly this early morning between 3 and 4 am. I presume they were 401 and 402, the former was very short, the later very long.

I did not see a 251 yesterday and I was home all day.

I posted this on the Amtrak Update but thought I would also post it here. An Amtrak trainset just drifted NB past my house at MP 22.5 at 7:20 am. And the website of Amtrak says that 351, the morning (and only now) train out of Pontiac had a service disruption. 352 arrived at Pontiac on time last night and this becomes 351 in the morning. I thought I heard 351 go by SB this morning on time. So who knows? This may be 351 heading back to Pontiac due to problems on the Holly (it never made it to Troy according to the website) or a replacement trainset from Chicago. It had a Charger on each end.

Hey Manistique.

251 has been sporadic lately. Its been a few days since I've seen him in daylight, and a while now since he has been the typical decent sized mostly loaded autorack train.

Have a good day and stay safe.

397 was just given a 10mph slow order at MP253, which is Durand.

Don't know where he is, but he will be coming into Durand sometime in the very near future.
