5823 was likely leading B73 or B71.

After further discussion on the scanner it was indeed B73

If it was mixed freight the one with 4214 and 4434 should have been 188 more than likely.

Most likely you heard the yard calling the 188 to give them permission by 10 which is east of where you are. I use that as a way to figure out train symbols if I didn’t happen to hear them when the train went by. It happens shortly after they clear Romulus but usually after the train had completely gone by and you can get back to the scanner.
