16:30 from FlyingEagleTV

Busy hour on the Clem:

383s currently at New Haven and just got the signal to proceed south. They will go down first. Then 482 who is currently sitting at Forest Lawn, will go. Then 533 will work Chrysler right after 482 clears them in Mt Clemens.

533 was telling them what their deal was about working Chrysler and dispatch just said “That’s not gonna happen…got some traffic to move first.”

383: Cn 8931 and 8820 and 84 cars. By 21 mile at 425p

Hind end of 482 clear Nolan - 533pm. 9mph

GLC OSTN is holding at Pitt for a NB CN - possible E251 or that Q119 from MoTerm.

EB lined from M1 at Durand into Flint Yard - L500

WB at Belsay lined as far as W Flint waiting on L500

2-unit WB using the Lansing Thorofare to get around P365. Probably L501 because they have to work Cory.

M397 (4-units) w BCOL 4652/GMTX 2255 by 205 cam.

EB lined into tunnel to Sarnia.

Another lines off of the Mt. Clemens sub onto Track 2 in Tappan
