402 is now 450

Someone posted this on fb:
CN making some small operational changes, 396 between Memphis and Sarnia is being dropped. Normally 396 runs Memphis to Toronto. The remaining traffic will move on other trains, northbound to Kirk. Canadian bound traffic will move on 492 from Kirk yard to Sarina. If Sarina yard has enough traffic to run an extra they will originate a 396. Also 402 is being changed. It will be known as 450, it will terminate at Flat Rock instead of Toledo Lang. Train will work Corey, Durand, and Pontiac enroute. 399 traffic merged into 397 and will have X397 if necessary.

Once things get back to normal COVID19 wise should we expect the changes to remain or get back to the way they were?

Eb manifest by 205 at 2246. Single cn leading, another in the middle. 450 just got the light to shove into durand yard. Wb stopped at west flint waiting on one. If its this one I hope they brought a lunch.

With how things have been going numbers and schedules may change 15 more times before things get back to normal...
