Live stream found here: http://railroadfan.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=33614
Antenna is located in West Michigan, and typically is hearing from around Grand Ledge to down west of St Joseph. Often hear trains on the Garrett Sub in Indiana as well.
Three separate feeds to listen to, one for CSX road channel 160.230, one for dispatch on the west end 160.635, and the third is called Grand Rapids Area Shortlines which also includes the dispatcher between Grand Rapids and Lansing.
There is also a feed out an area near Lansing: http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/18777

Not aware of any stream that far east on the Plymouth Sub, but amtrak1007's "Super Scanner" reliably covers the Grand Rapids sub from roughly St. Joseph to Grand Rapids and the Plymouth sub from Grand Rapids to roughly Grand Ledge. http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/22783

Yesterdays D70520, was re-crewed by D707 at Rickett Road in Brighton at 22:30 last night, and took the train all the way to Grand Rapids, (or was the plan). They took the three units away that has been on the train for a week, and replaced it with FOUR units, By Howell at 23:40 with CSX 163+520+8089+7896 with 214 cars, 880 axels, 12,699 ft.

Later, and for whatever reason, they ran a D908 out of Ensel who went east by Howell around 2am engine light (8145) and came back again engine light with the same power going back to Lansing at 5am. If nothing else, they turned the power at Plymouth as it was facing east, going east, and now facing west coming back.

D706 starting at GRP now instead of Lansing? Made it by Howell "around" 2pm, with, 'around" 115 cars. CSX 7869+8089 leading the way. Was out cutting grass when it went by. Must be the D90520 crew that was supposed to get D70520, but instead was recrewed by D707, was the crew that ran to Plymouth and back as D90820.

Who gets tanks at Green Oak? And the MofW was perhaps for the tie gang at Oak Yard?

For the record, my thoughts on the combining of the CSX Updates thread into monthly: Unlike, Dislike, No-likey.

Customer at Green Oak is Portech, or something very similar to that. Sure thought D908 went engine light in BOTH directions that night.
