Thanks for the info...I knew that this train probably didn't have more than 3 operating engines, more than likely, just 2. These trains do vary from around 50 cars to over 160, but seem to pull the grade out of Flint to just south of Grand Blanc just fine with two "good" ones...I think that some of those 9 were from the Port Huron trackage...they had a couple of loco's that failed one morning last week, and the crew taxied to Flint, and picked up a pair of better ones, and light footed it back to Port Huron to bring the #710 back to Flint in the late afternoon.
