Apparently S385's power was in East Yard. Heading out at Plymouth. NS 9351 + CSX 529 running light at the moment. Went south at Farmer, stopped, and turned west. So 529 now leading.

Q150 exists again?

P370-13 is currently departing St. Joseph. Sounds like IDTX 4621 leading.
Q327-13 is currently going through Riverside. Sounds like BNSF 9023 leading.
Also sounds like the lake effect snow band is hitting west of Riverside. P370 reported near zero visibility in St. Joe, and Q327 mentioned clear skies east of Riverside pretty much all the way to GR.

Last night Q38511 with only two of the four units reported to be on this train yesterday (7765 and NS 7316) caught up with the S38513 train at Williamston after midnight this morning who was in a holding pattern waiting for Q384 to get into Lansing. Have just heard that Q384 is now a GRP To Willard train only and the cars on this train will continue to Selkirk on Q634. 385 for now will continue to be Selkirk-GRP. With Q392-393 Selkirk to Chicago trains now being annulled, may explain what all of the auto rack cars in three different spots were doing on yesterdays 326 into GRP.
