U302-10 at 00:51 Reported westward at the Mulliken DD CH104.3 with CSX~ 916/5495 And 82 cars (340 axles).

U302-10 at 1:30 Reported westward at the Clarksville DD CH126.3 with 340 Axles

U302-10 at 2:23 Clear WE Fox CH143.7

U302-10 at 3:35 Clear Seymour CH148.1

I’m gonna guess L302 recrewed in Lansing but cannot confirm. After leaving Lansing every call out (Lake Odessa, Elmdale, Alto, Snow Rd ect) was just announced as “302-one..oh”. That was until Fox, to which it was then called out at “U302-10”

Hi Mikey, I also had sent the below as a Private Message to you:

For west bound trains headed to Grand Rapids, they will release their form EC1 for Lake Odessa/Grand Ledge when they have cleared Lake Odessa & about 17 minutes before arriving the DD at mp 126.3 You'll hear their train i.d. & the leading engine's number given 1st by the crew & then repeated by the Dispatcher.

If you're using a scanner you'll hear this at 160.320 MHz (channel 014). If you are using the free online Broadcastify scanners, it's the "Grand Rapids Area Shortlines" at this link:

Thanks! Yeah usually I would listen for the EC1 on there but I was rushing to get out of Grand Rapids and was going to catch it downtown on my way north and only wanted to run CSX WM on Broascastify. Thanks again Tom! : )

M326-11 @ 05:55 heard doing his job briefing in Barr Yard, Riverdale, Illinois. Only thing that could be heard was the Dispatcher saying he has CSX engine #776 leading. This was heard on the Broadcastify "Grand Rapids Area Shortlines" online scanner (channel 014). Usually, if I recall, they do their job briefings there on channel 012 & isn't a feed available on Broadcastify.

Amtrak P371-11 @ 06:36 westward reported by the Defect Detector mp CG19.1 in Zeeland, Mi with 20 axles. IDTX engine #4614 & 4 cars (Venture Business + 2 Venture Coaches + AmCafe).
