L303-10 @ 15:05 eastward reported by the Defect Detector mp CH126.3 Clarksville, Mi with 416 axles. CSX engines #5358 + #7041 (elephant style) & 101 cars (56 loads + 45 empties) @ 8,897 tons & 6,167 feet long. He has work for Lansing - final destination is Detroit. He is a “Key Train” (hazardous).

L301-10 @ 15:17 westward reported from the Defect Detector mp CG91.9 St Joseph, Mi with 48 axles. CSX engines #4057 + #8801 & 9 cars. He is headed to Arlington Metals in Sawyer, Mi mp CG105.2

L303-10 @ 15:47 eastward reported by the Defect Detector mp CH104.3 Mulliken, Mi with 416 axles.

L302-10 @ 16:03 Rougemere Yard/Detroit mark up with the RN Dispatcher & what sounded like: CSX engine #916 + 1 & 94(?) cars (55? loads + 39? empties). He's doubling up his train at this time. Static & the lower volume when the train crew is speaking makes it difficult to understand.

Unidentified train passing westbound through Zeeland Michigan @ 04:18
R597-10 @ 04:21 eastward reported by the Defect Detector mp CG19.1 Zeeland, Mi with 18 axles. CSX engines #846 + #3133 + 1 lite power. From what I could gather, R597-10 had taken the loaded coal train C800-10's "pusher power" after stopping their train at the west leg of the Wye in Holland, cutaway the "pusher engines" from the train & head into Grand Rapids...
To clear up any confusion for the record, R597 crew met C80010 at EE GD Jct. Upon arrival, found that 3133 would not start due to battery issues. Put the CSX units together with the BN 6048 before C800 arrived. They then added all 3 behind the 9294 to get C800 up the hill. R597 rode along in the CSX 846 to the west leg of the wye, where C800 cut away and ducked into the wye to let the 3 units pass east on the main to GR.

At GR, M327 and R597 worked together at Lamar on the main/service to get the power shuffled into position so both crews could get the power needed to continue their day.

Thank you for the additional information and clearing everything up pudgy. I was confused as hell this morning. I did not know which train I was seeing and couldn’t even tell which way R597 was heading.

Note: in my defense the train (R597) did wake me up out of a dead sleep. 😴
