Hmmm, 251 had two GE CN's on its way to Pontiac so it must have dropped one off and picked up the SD38 at Pontiac.

The EJE 657 is now leading E251 to Battle Creek. They departed around 5:30pm from Scott Lake Road and after 514 made it past them.

The CN 2284 had issues after stopping at Scott Lake for the crew change and replaced by the
EJE unit.

And speak of Scott Lake Road, I lives less a mile northwest of that road in Waterford. Conductors based out of Pontiac or Port Huron and engineers based out of Battle Creek or Pontiac works between Pontiac and Battle Creek.

What I presume was a late 401 went NB past MP 22.5 at 6:05 am. Short train.

And at 7:21 am, what I presume was the SB counterpart of 401, Train 402, went by with 5752 leading cowl 2452 and a medium-sized train.
