Sounds like that eastbound coal train N801-17 is currently around Hilltop, 532 axles, 7003 feet at 91.9 DD. BNSF 8458 leading. Guessing they'll meet D700 on the double track.

E800 westbound at Porter onto the NS at 11:30.

11:50 - Q326 coming up to Zeeland, sounds like CSXT 476 leading. CSXT leader for the first time in almost a week, lol.
11:57 - 552 axles, 7492 feet at 19.1 DD. D801 is back at Wells waiting to push coal loads.
12:19 - Medium Clear Grandville onto track 1.

12th Ave in Jenison has now been put into Activation Failure, one of the cantilevers is getting taken down for some reason. Might be a replacement happening.

D700 back EB at Vine at 12:44 ET with 8 axles, 104 feet.

I have been seeing CSX signal maintainers around 12th ave for a couple weeks. The South cantilever had a substantial lean towards the railhead from years of service.(and being hit a few times I'm sure) I noticed a new "bulb" or anchor assembly sitting on the back of a truck last week on my way home from work. I'm sure they are replacing at least that one cantilever. Would be nice to have a new set for the crossing, but with the random 3rd set of lights that sits in the island on the north side of the crossing, it probably isn't going to happen. Will try to get some pics after work if I think about it.

D700-17 with the CSXT 6547 leading is eastbound around Hudsonville, will be flagging 12th Ave. Had 120 axles, 1829 feet at 19.1 DD. Sounds like maintainers should finish the work on the crossing in the next few hours, before the next train.

Amtrak P370-17 has AMTK 90229, 4 single level cars, and AMTK 36 trailing. On-time departing St. Joseph. They met Q327 in Benton Harbor, and met E801 at Kirk.

21:43 - Q327 westbound at Vine, E801 westbound siding to main at WE Kirk. Sounds like CSXT 44 leading 327, not sure though.

P371-18 sounding like she is right next to the tower from MICHIGAN CITY IN!!! anyway, had some good skip on the short lines feed. Heard a KCS unit responding to something near chicago, didn't have time to figure out exactly where this was coming from but it was on AAR 3939...

0918 - P371 by the AD at CG131.3 Duran, IN

Guessing there's no power for 327 until 326 gets here.
