Listening to radio a bit, CN #5456 / R934 was doing typical local/yard switching work and I'm certain somewhere a couple times I heard the '502' symbol pointed out. Anyone else possibly listening who could confirm?

A different(?) EB at that sounded like they were set to proceed east from there. Not sure if Q116 as I heard Moterm discussed so they'd take Chicago wye at Durand SB

This train originated out of Port Huron. Is it all Canadian racks or did they pick up in Flint?

Train sitting in Battle Creek right now with a pair of SD70M-2's bracketing a BC Rail blue Dash 9 pointed East. Lights are off but I believe he is waiting for X491 to head into the yard. This is as of 1702.
This is my life. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

If this is a problem get used to it.
