451 cleared the detector MP 59.9 at 5:00 PM. 4475 feet long, 214 axles.

Will meet 502 at the south side siding. 502 has CN 2672 leading. My understanding is 397 is approaching Durand now.

Edit to add:

397 cleared the detector MP 257.1 at 5:22 PM, 566 axles. Sounds like CN 2605 Leading.

I heard 451 make reference to having NS 7342 as the lead engine? I wonder if a change to the power on 451 was made at Pontiac? As Manistique reported a Citi rail engine as leading.

502 cleared the detector MP 59.9 at 5:34 PM. 3682 feet, 172 axles.

What I believe to be 116 cleared the detector MP 59.9 at 4:07 AM. 1093 feet, 50 axles.

For reference 514 was just pulling in to the yard at Pontiac at the same time. GTW 4912 leading 514.

Edit to add:

I caught 116 at Williams Lake Rd. 4:42 AM. CN 2912 solo.

2 autoracks, and about 10 or 12 container wells. That was the shortest 116 I have seen.

What must have been that short 116 followed Amtrak 351 out of Pontiac this morning as, though I didn't get up to see it, I noted that it was a very short train. Maybe even shorter leaving Pontiac than when it arrived as it almost sounded like light engines.

At 9:25 am a SB sand train went past MP 22.5 with three CN locomotives.
