They snuck two SB's out ahead of Amtrak 351 this morning on the South Holly. The first one at 5:40 am was short, probably 401. The second was 116 with mixed at the end and flying 60 mph down the Hill to stay ahead of Amtrak. It delayed Amtrak's departure by a few minutes as it was a bit late going by my house at 6 am.

Northbound 401 by Linden at 8:37am.

Didn't get a total car count, but counted AT LEAST 35 boxcars in a row! Don't see that much anymore.

Hey Manistique. Saw your post about the 2 Southbounds this morning. 402 and 116 by you at that time - maybe they both were short on time?

Southbound 514? with CN 5413, CN junky looking unit SD40-2 Wide Cab (I think), 46 cars - mostly doublestacks.

Now I say 514 wit a question mark because this is 514s power but I read there was a Q198 coming and I think he comes down the Holly, but this was identified with 2 CN units both facing forward, so I do think this is 514.

That 198 had one leading and one pushing. I'm not sure where he's at currently.

Hey Jason.

Maybe 198 goes through to Canada? I thought when 198 does run he runs to Moterm.

Seems like he would be through here by now as you posted him around Lansing around 3:20. Lansing isn't far from Durand and Durand isn't far from me unless I missed him.

198 is listed as prince rupert to homewood so who knows where its headed. I guess we should be happy there's eb traffic coming off the west coast. A lot.of empty trains eb lately. I got video of one in kingman az about 2 weeks ago, saw another on the Flagstaff cam today.
