Train 514 past MP 22.5 at 7 pm. Short train, missed the power.

And at 7:30 pm a NB extra container train just went past with a CN leading a grey CREX lease unit.

514 has GTW 4900 leading southward.

189 - CN 2904 and CREX 1501 was the intermodal.

Amtrak 352 is at Royal Oak. AMTK 68.

What looked like 515 or maybe a 513 went WB past MP 22.2 with GT 5844 at 8:45 pm. Odd thing was that its train consisted of about a dozen loaded centerbeams instead of the usual empties it takes back to Pontiac.

L533 and M382 met in Mt. Clemens at 20:23.
L533 with GTW 4929 was working Mt. Clemens, which caused M382 to stop in Fraser for a few minutes.
Once L533 went in the siding, M382 got moving, quickly gained speed, and passed by with CN 3223, 2851, & 2991 with 152 cars.
