A weekend 515 Local out of Pontiac went SB by MP 22.5 around 12 noon today with 6200 as power. Isn't this the original DT&I GP38 from 1966? A very early GP38?

Train 371 NB passing MP 22.5 at 2 pm with BNSF 8400 and 6295.

GTW GP38 #6200 has been gone for years! A "Quick" search yielded what it became! Look here, it is now RTEX: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/LocoPicture.aspx?id=13665
:?: What locomotive did you see though?

I didn't think DTI 200 was still on CN's roster. But I am pretty sure it was 6200 that went by and it looked like a GP38. In black and orange modern CN paint scheme. Larger numbers on the side of the cab. It just went by NB on the way back but it is dark out but I saw 6200 on the number board as it went by.

398 by 295 about 1450 with 2 cn. I didn't catch the number but the leader had a circular emblem under the engineers window that was white with a couple symbols on it one of which looked like a gingerbread man.

Have they stopped running 451? I dont remember hearing it mentioned lately. I know 371 predated 451 and they would sometimes switch the number during the trip. Or am I confusing the numbers?

371 and 451 switched their origin points. 371 starts in Flat Rock, 451 at Battle Creek.

Sounds like 383 is about to head down the shared at Vinewood and down through Delray. He's following 116 I believe.
