And this 116 just went past MP 22.5 on the Holly at 4:20 pm, again at restricted speed. Must be because of the wind today. Almost to Moterm! Long train today.

And while 116 was heading SB on Main 1, returning train 515 with 5930 and just a few cars passed it behind my house NB at 4:15 pm.

GTW 4900 drifted lite SB past MP 22.5 at 8:15 pm.

It's probably either auto parts or aluminum ingots in the box car unless there's a box car customer between MC and Moterm

No activity in Pontiac Yard. 5930 is sitting on the engine service track. Mostly empty center beams in the yard. A few other miscellaneous cars. Looks like some chemical and plastic pellet cars on the local outbound track.
