EB L500 crawling past a 2-unit E275 which is stopped at Cedar.

A492 sitting at Okemos waiting for a WB, hopefully E251 but could also be M397.

Edit 6:50 PM below

WB E275 is proceeding from Cedar.
EB L500 is stopped before the Trowbridge diamond waiting for another WB.

5407 is arriving at Pontiac Yard with a plastic pellet covered hopper and a long string of empty center beams. Seems like an early return for the Detroit local but the consist would suggest that’s what it is.
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...

E251 yesterday must’ve had 30+ empty centerbeams on the head end and more scattered thru the mixed freight portion of the train. That’s a whole lotta wood.
