Symbol changed to M371. CN 8013 and CN 5673.

371 was to meet an eastbound at Bancroft and two more at West Shaftsburg. One of those trains is L502, with UP 4113 and UP 4689.

L504 is also heading east with CN 2403 solo.

Also have an X117 out of Moterm today. It will have CN 2260 and CN 2128.

Amtrak 352 is about an hour and a half late into Pontiac this evening, passing MP 22.5 just now at 9:24 pm. All the Wolverines are now down to five cars, their usual length.

That comment above by 6401 about Train 451 now being reclassified as Train 371 is interesting. That was the original number of this train a few years ago. It has some significance, like its ultimate destination or something that has changed. If I recall, when it was Train 371 before it all went to one railroad and when they changed the symbol to Train 451 it meant the train was split up and went to more than one railroad. Anyone know? I think it is more advantageous/profitable to CN when it is a Train 371.

371 and 451 switched their origin points. 371 is now a Flat Rock to UP - Arlington, Texas train. 451 is a Battle Creek to IHB Gibson Yard.
