D707 CSXT 5241 West Clear on a pair Elmdale.
This is my life. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

If this is a problem get used to it.

When Q385 went by me in Howell at 06:57, NS 4043 was the trailing unit, (is what i wrote down instead of 4042) but facing west, behind CSX 7891 which was leading, and 7649.

Not sure if this counts for CSX or not, but Joe Brown’s 45 Ton switcher just set off 3 gondolas for Y195(?) to pick up. How often does Grand Elk come up here since they rebuilt the track, if at all?

Joe Brown is not a Grand Elk customer so they never come up there...if you're talking about Grand Elk/JoeBrown. Or have they reconnected to them behind GVSU at Fulton again?

They built a new connection off the existing CSX spur to the still extant part of the GDLK spur between Butterworth and Emperor.

What looks like Q241 just turned south at Plymouth. CSX 70 + 32 autoracks. On the next (northern) track, another WB turned north, with CSX 445 + 907 + 474 + 10 empty centerbeams, and went into North Yard.
(So which is Track 1 and which is Track 2?)

D70821 running around at South Lyon, dispatcher in Jacksonville said Q385 is going to recrew at yard office, then pick up some cars on the north side.
Missed the axle count, but 748 feet long at the 39.1 detector.
