M397 will be another monster train today with 3 up front and a mid train DPU like Saturday’s 397.

There’s an x275 called in PH. All empty racks for Flint.

It’s quiet in town with no CN action atm and CSX’s D705/706 already having run thru.
That x275 is being diverted to Flat Rock FYI for all the Mt. Clemens Subbers.
By Mount Clemens depot at 14:23.

They are meeting at Mill.

ADBF/JAIL took three boxcars back to CN today so the local R934 should go here in the next day or so.
