Wb manifest by 205 at 1959 with 3 cn. Pretty short train. Freight makes me think 401 but its a strange time.

Noticed a train waiting to leave Battle Creek yard eastbound, CN leader but 2nd was a bright yellow, new looking engine 701 with large Progress Rail logo, didnt find it in a quick look through some rosters...a demonstrator maybe? It was a ways away in poor light, but it looked to be all or mostly yellow, not the yellow/black CAT paint design I've seen before.

EMDX 7201, Tier 4 ACe unit, and is on train Q148.
This is my life. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

If this is a problem get used to it.
