Haven't heard anything about 385 yet. Just getting back into the swing of things, as I've been very busy these past few weeks with school. :D

Was the DPU running "Mid-Train" or on the rear? Also, did it have its
"Red Marker Lights" turned on? How many cars? CN seems to be doing this more!!!! :mrgreen:

A southbound cleared the detector MP 34.2 at 11:25 PM (280 Possibly). also as I type this a train is headed around the Chicago Wye (11:30 PM) I am guessing 116. no engine numbers yet but will edit if/when I get them.

edit to add:

the second train I mention above has cleared the detector MP34.2 southbound at 12:16 AM, with 354 axels, CN 2586 leading. This train has pulled down to Johnson Ave., and are waiting on a re-crew. I am leaning toward his being 116 in large part due to the first train not working Pontiac.

While here I will add 514 cleared the detector MP 34.2 southbound at 12:30 AM, 44 axels.

CN 2586 is NOT 116 as I thought, 116 already at Moterm. CN 2586 is good to depart Pontiac southbound at 1:17 AM.
