Last night around 10 pm two light GE's MU'ed went NB past MP 22.5 both running backwards. I presume they were from thus train and had dropped the train off at Moterm and were going to spend the night at Pontiac engine facilities. I was gone all day and night so never saw it go SB.

This morning at 5:30 am a SB went by MP 22.5 before Amtrak. I presume Train 402 but didn't get up to check.

And right now at 6:38 am Train 116 is SB with two GE's as power.

It is going by MP 22.5 at 11:24 with BNSF 6096 as power. Must not have stopped in Pontiac.

Wait, he had BNSF 8052 on the rear end. First time I have seen a DPU on a 280-type train.

Eb manifest by 205 at 1416. 3 cn. A lot of empty beam cars in the mix. Some moves like that are confusing from the outside. A whole train of empty beam went west yesterday and today a half a train goes east...

At 5:10 pm Train 251 with two CN GE's was NB past MP 22.5. And a few minutes later Train 514 with 5413 and 5340 again was SB with a few containers.

And at 5:42 another NB is passing MP 22.5 with two GE's and mostly mixed freight including a big cut of new tank cars without the side markings painted on yet from what I could tell. Must be an extra as very few autoracks like a 251, mostly on the tail end. Very long train. Amtrak 355 passed it just now on Main 1.
