CN ??? Cleared CP Beck A485??? No frames decent amount of racks/tanker cars. Some coil cars in the mix, missed the power sadly
It was indeed A485.

Is there a way to tell 383 and 485 apart other than that 383 normally has DPU’s?

485 usually has a fair amount of lumber on it, more so than 383. 485 will also sometimes have a long string of empty auto racks in the consist.

383 in general is pretty heavy with loaded scrap, steel, clay, and sand.

LansingRailfan, do you know where HESR GP40-2LW #3036 is going? :?: I have read New England Central Railroad® out east!!!! Is this engine coming back to Port Huron on a different train today? I have photographed it many times as both CMGN 9712 and HESR 3036! It would be nice if it transferred to the Mount Clemens Sub. on train 485!!!! Please help!

I heard it's also going to NECR in Vermont. It's already in Canada, mate.

Is there a way to tell 383 and 485 apart other than that 383 normally has DPU’s?
David, Carsan and MtClemensRailFan are correct in their observations. Also, much of 383 goes to CSX and 485 is largely a NS train, so you will often see an abundance of cars from those roads on each of these respective symbols. 485 will on occasion run without frames and can fool some of us at trackside! With auto plant summer breaks looming, 485 will shrink for a spell...

A484 On Fort street @19:54 camera down in Trenton, Ex Citirail #2761 Trailing, seems like a decent size train might take awhile to work East yard if it works it.
