950, GTW 4619 will be working between Nolan and Milwaukee Jct for a bit. Desk 8 says an X383 will be leaving Port Huron shortly.

I believe X383 terminates at CSX Stanley Yard in Toledo like M383. The power might come back on 382 within the next 24 hours.

533, CN 2633, is okay on the west track from Nolan to Milwaukee Jct. They will heading back to Port Huron later as lite engine.

383 terminates at Lang Yard in Toledo. The train is switched out and becomes Z247 to Walbridge yard and returns. 382 does the same at Lang before departing

391 tonight was lite power out of Toledo. 2679 2441

Then we got X383! It was awesome and the reason I wanted to get this "ZEBRA COWL" LEADING!!!! :mrgreen: CN C40-8M #2403 and CN C40-8 #2127!!!! We didn't stay─I was hoping to "Catch" it! Now, Flat Rock found a good unit in the yard!!!! "Bessemer" SD40T-3 #904 sat in the yard!!!! I got some quick pix, but was going to ask permission! WOW, A "BESSEMER" IS HERE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!

As of 09:30 a pair of westbound CN manifest trains are sitting at the west end of Battle Creek Yard, each with a BCOL C40-8M second out, both with SD70M-2 leaders and one with a standard cab SD60 trailing.

BNSF 9213 led a 5 engine empty coal west through East Lansing at 15:41. Not sure if this was 765 from Durand or 767

Yep, that train was 765. Hard to believe that 766/767 stopped running 3 years ago.

I thought they had stopped running in April 2014. But now that you mention it, it may have been more recent. Not sure why I thought 2014 :oops:
