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.
Traffic that moved on 401 from Lang Yard appears to be setout at East Yard, forwarded to Pontiac by 515 or 513, then finally to Battle Creek on 451.

A482 north through Chesterfield at 16:39. CN 3163, 3026, 2885, & 3835 with 116 cars. Slowed down so A485 could get in the siding at Haven. Did not stick around for 485.

482 met 533S at Mount Clemens and 485 at New Haven. 485 followed 533 to East Yard. 533N just passed by Mount Clemens depot for Tappan a little bit ago. We'll see if we get those mysterious light engine moves again in the wee hours...
