Wyandotte in the mid-1990's

Other than the Amtrak Lake Cities, what would you see when you were railfanning in Wyandotte in the mid-1990's (or, specifically, 1993-97 or even further up until the Conrail breakup)? When I was railfanning then, there seemed to be slightly fewer freights on the Detroit Line than there are today. Was it the same for the CN trackage through the city?

CN was much busier in Wyandotte back in the 90s. Had a lot more manifest and coal traffic then.

That explains why I was more likely to see action on the Grand Trunk Western instead of on the Detroit Line back then.
