251 at Pontiac at 15:00. CN 8898, IC 2456, CN 5788, and GTW 4919.
251 is also picking up four engines brought in earlier. Those are CN 5685 5613 2609 and BNSF 4043.
Do you know when 251 will be departing Pontiac?

KCSM 4097 + BNSF 6781 west through East Lansing at 17:15. Sorry for delayed post
KCSM 4097/BNSF 6781 is L501. Still working Cory as of 6:45 PM.

Crew is having fun w all of the photographers.
Does anyone know where KCSM 4097 is headed next? Will it be in the area Friday (4-2)? Is this power staying in Flint for a while? I'm going again to Port Huron with "Mazon!" Hoping to catch LSRC on the "Dunn Paper Spur" and anything unusual on CN!!!! "Cowls" would be nice too!!!! :wink:

251 with 8898 plus 6 more through Lansing at 23:01


I believe it had all of the engines listed earlier except for the GTW 4919. I assume that was dropped in Pontiac
