Should be 280 to Flat Rock. Waiting for one at Okemos at 13:25 and then going to meet another one at Shaftsburg.

251 north at Birmingham at 13:28 with CN 5779 and CN 2600.

I hear a train horn near Great Lakes Crossing. Might be the yard job switching the scrap yard on what's left of the PollyAnn.
PatC created a monster, 'cause nobody wants to see Don Simon no more they want AARR I'm chopped liver, well if you want AARR this is what I'll give ya, bad humor mixed with irrelevant info that'll make you roll your eyes quicker than a ~Z~ banhammer...

CN 2714 = IC 2714

This was M397 - very interesting with that one Intermodal double stack! Truly a "Mixed Freight"

I'd love to know the story behind it. I wonder if it was a bad order that got set off somewhere.
