Well I got really bored and decided to go for a drive. Caught 2531 in bay city. Just missed a train..(I saw the last few cars) at blacmar siding, In saginaw I saw the HESR 3866 and 8905 heading east. In flint I caught the GTW 4910 and 4626. Then I drove through durand. nothing!....went to bancroft....NOTHING! so I went to lansing....caught a csxt east bound with a 7800...... and a cefx unit leading....numbers to follow....
nothing in ensel yard. Went to the NS saginaw yard and saw NS/Conrail 3057? also caught the 2408 and 5257 with a herzog ballest train heading east....I chased it back to trowbridge. At the cn yard I saw UP 6785, up 8020, and up/sp 6166. And GTW cab 76046. After that I got on 96 east and headed towards detroit. Never saw another train the entire night. I went into ohio just to say I had been there but couldn't stay since I had to go home and sleep to be to work the following morning. I am planning a trip this week to ohio though I am not sure when I'll be going. It'll be a one day trip and i'll have a full report and hopefully a set of pics soon afterwards. lata all.

Did you stop by Trowbridge while you were in the area?? How did you go to all those places AND Ohio in one day?? I wish I could do that, but I've got a few more years to go before I can drive around.
