D70230 approaching Brighton at 11am. CSX 857+8715, around 100 cars. The 7777 mentioned earlier as possibly being on this train was on an empty grain train heading west by Howell at 05:04. CSX 7859+7777 with 83 cars. It did not go to Webberville, so must have been an MQT train if its there already.

D702 has paused in Plymouth. Waiting for it at Middle River. Was passing over Sheldon Rd. at 11:45. Heard something on the scanner about a pilot.
UPDATE: 12:25 clearing Middle River. I counted 97 cars.

GR crews are not qualified from Plymouth to Flint. Until they get qualified they must call Pilots out of Toledo to help them take the train up there.
CSX_CO: 10 minutes, keep hoping the yard blows up and I won't have to go in tonight.

CSX_CO: Hump Hump Hump all night long, hump all night while I sing this song. See those cars, going to make them fly, sure hope the double o' eight is on time
