10 cars? How many people on that train? Anyone got more info on this train, and why it's in Michigan? Nice catch!

The grapevine states that it was loaded with CN and UP brass who were checking out a new and/or expanded intermodal offering.

Sounds similar to last year? when a nearly identical UP OCS went to North Baltimore to commemorate another new offering with CSX there.

Thanks. It appeared to have a diner and a couple sleepers. A little unusual for an OCS.
