CSX #2047 was temporarily on L301-15 on 04/01/24 after one of their engines, CSX #8199 has issues and was towed to Chicago. I would assume CSX #2047 was on a recent L303(?) and dropped off in Lansing.

Last night's L304-16 had traveled west all the way into Grand Rapids & was reported by the DD mp CH126.3 at 01:02am with CSX engine #8054 & 49 cars. On his eastward return trip this morning, he was reported by the DD mp CH126.3 at 7:00am with 34 axles that had calculated out to be CSX engine #8054 & 7 cars (or, so it was thought). It now appears his consist had included CSX engine #2047, a 4 axle type GP38, that was being used by L301 being paired up with CSX engine #2428. Today, L301 was operating with CSX engines #2428 + #4057. So, it seems, my L304-16 eastward DD reports was actually CSX engines #8054 + #2047 & 6 cars.

It appears R598-16 had added the CSX power & left the train tied down in Wells. I can't find an EC1 release by him in the scanner archives, nor, radio calls for the Road Channel.

R59816 followed Z627 down after the Shore cleared up in the east leg of the Wye at Waverly. As L301 pulled out at Holland, R598 pulled up thru the west leg to the depot and followed right behind L301 as close as the signals would allow. Cleared the EC-1 so Z627 could get the track back to head north.

No room for the loads at Wells in the plant until consumers dumps some more cars tonight.

"Crew OD for B23516 at 23:01. Going for Webberville" mentioned in a private chat... they made it to Plymouth around 07:00 this morning. I do not know the power.
There is also a G790 at Walbridge, I suppose B235 explains why they hadn't moved in days.
