Looks like the Pontiac locals have departed. Don’t see center beams so must be heading to the lumber transload in Detroit.
PatC created a monster, 'cause nobody wants to see Don Simon no more they want AARR I'm chopped liver, well if you want AARR this is what I'll give ya, bad humor mixed with irrelevant info that'll make you roll your eyes quicker than a ~Z~ banhammer...

L533S leaving Mount Clemens for Moterm at 17:05. Not sure how eastern Canadian intermodal traffic is now getting to Detroit via the new operating plan. L533N carries only domestics for BIT/domestics and marine containers for the Port of Montreal (via Toronto connection)/and marine containers for Halifax (via Toronto connection). Detroit bound containers were nowhere near as heavy as east bounds - but there were quite a few, so apparently another routing is being utilized - at the moment.

Train 513 on Container duty has GT GP38-2 4912 doing the honors today, clawing up the Hill barking away and passing MP 22.5 as I write this at 5:33 pm at about 15 mph. One tank car was behind the locomotive today. Rest containers so far.
