Not often do three trains come into Wyoming at the same time. The past returns! We used to sit at Patterson (before the brodge went in) for hours waiting for something to leave GRP so we could go into the yard.
Hope its the new normal.
Enjoy Every Sandwich.

Imagine how it will be if or when the new trains between GR and Ohio mentioned a while back in the thread in Michigan talk are implemented, and when the Detroit traffic will supposedly be routed to GR as well. Busy, busy, busy.

I was kinda looking for D702 yesterday for Flint. I don't think it ran, Gotta think with 170 cars yesterday on D701 where between Flint and Grand Rapids can two 10,000 and 11,000ft trains meet.

Q327 west at Grand Junction. 6?? Axles, 8300 feet
Q326 not yet heard on the SuperScanner, thinking they're already in the hole for Q327 and 371 somewhere. Their EOT is giving them troubles, going in and out.
D702 coming out of the Mouse in Wyoming Yard to start putting their train together
P955 due out sometime shortly after 8
D80? On their power at Wyoming, helpers for Q326 and also due to build empties after.

Looks like I picked a good weekend to come back to GR...too bad the weather is garbage!
