At around 1420 EDT, 256 had arrived at Oakwood Yard and was visible from the big Fort Street overpass. Power was a sole Dash 9-44CW in stripes with a long train of Triple Crown trailers.

At around 1416 EDT, a westbound CP manifest was stopped at Delray awaiting permission to head onto the Detroit District. Power was at least two CP widecabs and the only cars I could see were silver covered hoppers.

332 crossed Oak Street on Detroit Line track 2 at 1334 EST. Power was 9457 and 9339, both Dash 9-44CW in stripes. 332 cleared the crossing at 1337 EST.

31M was at North Yard at 1228 EST. It was solely led by ES44AC 8114, the Original Norfolk Southern unit. May have been visible from the big Mount Elliott Street overpass or likely the underpass at Conant Street.
