Despite the 25-30 cars they brought with them, after spending nearly five hours switching Thermofil because its been so long since they have been there, they are turning at Fowlerville at 19:15 and taking the cars back with them. Maybe next week and leave the Ann Pere pickup for Q329 in the morning.

P370-13 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like IDTX 4619 leading.

Amtrak #370 east at Grandville at 23:24. Then CSX lite power, a pair of GEVOs, took off westward after holding briefly for the flagship. Destination unknown.

Only half that many by me, all loaded scrap tie gons which they tied on to the cars in the pass that 328 sat off yesterday, finally picked up the cars in the transfer that had been sitting there for a week and went back home. But, they were here.

NB mixed freight just turned east at Plymouth. Just missed the engines, but about 115 cars. Likely Q508; no scanner with me.

N800-12 is currently going through Benton Harbor.
Sounds like they'll meet Q327 at Kirk, then go to Grand Junction to pick up their helper units.

Q327-14 is currently going through RIverside. Sounds like CSXT 5421 leading. I'm guessing they'll meet P370 on the double track in Benton Harbor.

P370-14 is currently going through Benton Harbor, about 20 minutes late (early for P370 lately. :P ) Sounds like IDTX 4619 leading.
