118 or maybe 120 by 205 at 0935. 1 cn pulling and one pushing. The unit on the back was a ge and it was barking pretty good as it headed off to the east. Looked like pretty much all salt containers. 304 axles, meeting one at shaftsburg.

Southbound 280-type Autorack train with 72 autoracks by me in Linden at 9:45am with a BNSF Leader and a CN trailing. Too far away to get engine numbers - maybe I should get the binoculars next time.

Thanks KC8RBK for the heads up on the 118/120 train. This will come down the Holly Sub I assume and will keep an eye a bit later for another southbound and will report if I'm home.

After the wb at e durand gets in the hole we'll have a better idea what it is since the route will show up through there. That stack train just tripped the 219.5 dd at 0956 for a current location

Hey David he did just align down the holly so I'm guessing 118. I guess it is the time of year to start seeing him again. Always seems to be around the holidays. If someone hears to train number down there and it's not 118 please correct me. Wb lined through durand m1 but not showing on the screen yet. The rack train that was by here a bit ago is currently by snow yard and meeting one at okemos. Whatever the wb is it must have some kinda priority to it 1020
