Two freights followed Amtrak 351 SB out of Pontiac this morning.

The first was a loaded sand train (vibrates the house when it goes by).

I didn't get up to see the second but from the sound of it it may have been a 280 autorack train.

Hey Manistique / Others:

Four (4) trains went through Linden between around 3:30 and 5:50 this morning. I don't usually hear them anymore, but was awake early.

These could have been 116, 401, 402, or 514. Good to know one of these four was a sand train that Manistique reported. Seems as though they are running this train about once or maybe even twice per week lately. Its possible its more than that, but they tend to come through at night, so I can't get an accurate count.

A NB freight passed SB Amtrak 351 at 6 am at MP 22.5. Not sure what the freight was. Maybe a late 401 (former 391)?
