I don’t think they normally run these trains during the weekend. I could be wrong tho.

Cool the "Geometry Train!!!!" :mrgreen: Does anyone know if or when it will traverse the Mt. Clemens Subdivision? :?: Also, what power is on it? I missed the one in 2018 with WC GP40 #3018! :evil: I seem to remember them only staying on the "Flint Sub." Hopefully CN 0998 will run on weekends! If not, where is it being stored? Any access? :!: :?:

Anyone have a clue where the train would be sitting at the moment? If he’s possibly headed East it’s probably good to know which CN sub he’s taking.

Southbound Lite Engines (2 CN units, 1 was Zebra Stripe), by Linden around 7:38am.

My guess is they are picking up an extra either at Pontiac, Moterm, or Flat Rock.
