Train 116 SB past MP 22.5 at 7:22 am with two BNSF Units (first one was, I think, 9600) and GTW 5831. Just some doublestacks in the middle. Mostly autoracks. Maybe a combined 116/280?

Train 950 SB past MP 22.2 at 9:20 am with IC 9571.

We had two NBs past MP 22.5 on the Holly this evening. Around 7 pm was what I thought an early 391. The two BNSF units that were on that 116/280 this morning were powering it, elephant style with the 6000 turned and leading. Maybe it was a late 451? I was gone from 10 until 2 so didn't see if 451 went by at its more usual time.

Then at 8 pm another NB went by. Maybe this was 391. Two CN units.

Amtrak 352 was running late, going NB past MP 22.5 around 8:20 pm. The eastbound Amtraks have been running late all summer, probably due to track work somewheres.

You sir, are correct. First train was a tardy 451, with 391 not too far behind when they came by you....

OK, does anyone know the "Schedule" of this train? I sure want to catch the "RARE" WC unit!!!! Will it come back to Michigan? What about "Spraying" the Mt. Clemens, Holly or Shoreline Subdivisions? Please help!!!!
