Northbound manifest at CP BECK (Fraser) on the Mt. Clemens.
08:46 CN 3029, CN 5776. Pretty long, like pre-lockdown length.
I haven't lost my mind, it's on tape backup here somewhere...

Its around 10am as I type this, so maybe about 20 minutes ago something went North by the new detector at 56.2 with 4 axles going 59mph.

Guessing it was maybe some kind of CN track inspection vehicle or something, but couldn't check because I was in a meeting. I doubt it was just a single locomotive, but who knows.

Southbound CN truck pulling 1 gon, by Linden at 3:40pm.

I think he is going to tie up in Linden actually on the siding just north of Linden Road.

Southbound 514 by Linden at 4:14pm with the usual suspects and 48 cars.

That CN truck and gon is going to follow him south per scanner chatter between him and 514.

Hey Nichoff81 - any idea if that autorack train was going to Lansing or headed further East toward me?

Haven't seen a autorack train in many weeks down the Holly Sub and would be nice to see one again.

Thanks.

If its the one in Durand now its headed for flint yard. By just looking at the map its hard to tell which train is which unless you can watch more consistently.
