Southbound by Linden at 5:40pm. Too dark to tell what it was, but I could make out some autoracks with the binoculars, it could have been a late 116 or 502.

I don't "think" it was an autorack train, but it was hard to tell. Pretty long one, so maybe if you are early riser you might see it.

Sometime in the night, I think it was maybe around 4:30 or so, another train went by. This locomotive had the sweetest sounding horn I have ever heard, almost like a trumpet or something else, I can't describe it very well but it was perfect sounding. It was definitely not a CN unit, no offense to CN horns, I like all horns, but this one, it was almost like a sound from Heaven. I know that sounds corny, but man what I would give to hear that again!

That southbound you reported is going by MP 22.5 right now at 7 am. It had doublestacks on the front end and autoracks on the rear so I presume it was a short 116 that they filled out.

I heard that NB too going past Opdyke Road this morning. I wondered if it was the new Coke Train as he usually goes NB at night. The horn didn't catch my attention (other than to wake me up) but the rattling of stuff on my dresser did, thus my guess it was a heavy train like the Coke Train.

Two NB's past MP 22.5 late this afternoon. They both looked like Train 371 (mostly autoracks with some mixed on the front end maybe for Pontiac). The first had a CN leading a rebuilt CSX SD40. The second had a single CN GE.

Trains are starting to ramp up!!

Northbound 371 by Linden at 5:43pm. By the detector at 59.9 with 396 axles at 5:50pm, also coming into Durand soon.

Westbound on the mainline as I am typing this, just hit the detector at 257.1. Axle count is 268, should be coming into Durand very soon as I type this at 5:47pm.

EDIT: Hey Jason, you will have 3 Westbounds coming at you later tonight, one of which is 371.

Another Northbound by me in Linden around 7pm.
