450 through East Lansing at 22:06

They must have dropped off CN 5635 & BNSF 5170 at Snow yard
Is the yard filled w empty coal cars to go back west or are they setting up for a rack train?
Not sure, the 2 freights were blocking the view of most of the yard

Way late report but there was an eb by 205 close to 2am moving extremely slow. Maybe 5mph max. I didn't hear it stop but the slow flanges woke me up. I'll go back in the scanner archive and see if I can find out why

It was a stack train, guess is 148. First car was an inspection boxcar. Passed here from 0158-0205. 444 axles, 17mph. Dispatcher had to talk him by all the signals from Walton through potterville.

South end of Pontiac Yard has no cars. Completely empty. North end has a few strings of hi cube box cars (probably for GM Stamping), frame flats (probably for the repair shop in Waterford, tanks cars and a few miscellaneous others.
PatC created a monster, 'cause nobody wants to see Don Simon no more they want AARR I'm chopped liver, well if you want AARR this is what I'll give ya, bad humor mixed with irrelevant info that'll make you roll your eyes quicker than a ~Z~ banhammer...

Anyone have any updates on the CN 100 unit headed East? He’s way overdue at Lapeer and passed the Charlotte cam at noon.
