Northbound by the detector at 56.2 (just North of Linden) at 2:20 pm with 660 axles.

I assume this is 251, but did not see it.

I was on my home from from Burke Building Center in Waterford and I about to turn right on Hatchery Road from Dixie Hwy when I saw CN freight train E251 and No Right Turn light was on until the train cleared the crossing. That was around 2:30pm today. There is another NO RIGHT Neon Light on north side of Hatchery Road at the foot of Saginaw Trail, just west of the train tracks.

That biz car came in last week on M395 or 397. Was sandwiched between two auto racks and set out in flint. 149/147 must have picked it up on its way west.
