Watching ATCS, something went south out of Moterm and is now lined north up the Mount Clemens Sub. Unless I wasn't paying close enough attention and something else completely different happened, which is just as likely.

This seems goofy! How come BCOL "Cowl" #4606 was seen heading west, 2nd of two locos! This was one of the five "DEAD COWLS" heading east to Canada for "Scrapping" July 20th!!!! Did this engine "Miraculously" return to service? :?: BCOL 4622 and 4617 were reported recently also!!!!! Glad to see "Active Cowls!!!!" :mrgreen: :mrgreen: The other day a false report on "EJE 667" makes me wonder about "BCOL 4606"! Did anyone else see this train? :!: :?:

"Virginia Railfan" reported BCOL C40-8M #4606 at Flint, MI, 9-6-20, 8:08 p.m. here: https://heritageunits.com/locomotive/detail/BCOL4606
