D70601 had 95 cars when it went east by Howell at 05:38. At least 30 stone empties on the rear, first of the season after their usual winter time storage. Looked like close to 50 cars on the head end were part of the 71 cars D708 picked up at Ann Pere yesterday.

D711 is getting ready to depart Flint for Port Huron. They have to wait for Z127 to head south, which should be pretty soon.

Look at the attached photo for context, hats off to whoever made the site do this :lol: :D

This is for CSX Train Locations, not sure why it changed to CN, but I'm sure I typed in CSX

Looks like a clear on the WAS at Howell - 14:21.
