AARR, I did not get exact car numbers. However, I know that 502 set off primarily traffic for HESR and Dow Chemical.

L504 just went straight through EB. Sometimes L504 has work at Flint and/or Lapeer, though. Also I've heard that what looks like an L504 can occasionally be an M348. And sometimes an M348 can "become" an L504 in Michigan on its way east; it's a bit confusing to me, to be honest.

If I recall correctly, 502 backed into the yard with 25 cars, and departed with 4 before hooking onto the rest of the train and continuing east.

#149, the intermodal at 9:38, had 159 double stacks, 35 singles, and 15 empties.
