Too bad this train wasn't a little later! I probably won't get 116 in Flat Rock! :shock: "WOW COWLS!!!!" :shock:
Yup got southbound train 116 with the very last CN "Cowl" built (1992)! Photographed it at Moterm around 2:35 p.m. and then south across 7 Mile, Detroit!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Yeah for some reason they wanted it to pick up a single tank car at Potterville. They fouled up the single track and delayed things.

M396 was EB by 205 at 7:00 PM.

There’s a Z149 out there and an M397 behind it.

Basically CN is about 12 hours behind on the Flint sub today with trains out of Canada and Chicago delayed.
