Train 371, formerly 451, NB past MP 22.5 with two UP units leading what looks like a rebuilt CN SD40, maybe 3101 if I got my numbers right, at 3:10 pm.

Train 515 with 5930 is NB past MP 22.5 at 6 pm with a long train.

Q116 has CN 2675 leading. They are approaching Holly.

L501 is working at Flint, and L505 is behind them and will also work the yard there.
