E251 out of Flat Rock has EJE 659 solo today to Pontiac. Will most likely have additional CN units put in front before it continues north.

Well, looks like the CN/BCOL C40-8M "Cowls" are all in storage now!!!! Does anyone here know which (if any) are still in "Active" service? :?: Man, they were used more during the cold months and heavy traffic! Could some be brought back to service if needed? This seems to have happened before!!!! Though, it looks like CN will be picking up 75 ex CREX ES44AC units to replace the "Dash 8" locos! Are any C40-8/C40-8W locos out running also? Man, I want to get a CN 🦓🦓 "Zebra Cowl!!!!" 🦓🦓

You saw M394 which means L500 skated by you.
