A big 140 car northbound manifest turned west onto the Flint Sub in Durand at 10:04am. 4 CN's for power. I'm guessing this is A401, the former L591.

Wait, What?!

This train used to be 391, then was changed to 591 very recently, and now its A401? BTW - what does the "A" represent?

Anyway, cool on the car count and thanks for the update atrainguy60.

Thanks.

The wiki describes A trains as short-haul manifests. Another symbol change is L502, which has been renamed A402. Some additional info on the train today, apparently it departed Pontiac with 91 cars and picked up the rest in Durand.

I hear the coke is from Zug Island in River Rouge/Detroit and the train originates either there or the former DT&I yard at Great Lakes Steel in Ecorse. I haven't heard where it is going to. My guess to a steel plant in Gary, Indiana or there abouts.
