Apparently, the G65502 at Webberville with CSX 5469+719 for power (both facing west) is not a empty grain train, but is a loaded potash train. With the grungy old cars that were on it, almost think I saw a video of this train leaving Florida a few days ago. Power light leaving for GRP at 16:40 from Webberville. They will be meeting a D90202, who is going to Plymouth only with a short train, whatever that is about.

D902-02 is nearing Grand Ledge with the 8013 lead and two cars. Sounds like it is a hot hot hot car that got lost and sent to GR by accident, and is a shutdown car for the customer so there goes the extra to Plymouth.

By Howell at 19:22 with CSX 8013, one of the Florida assigned SD40-2 units the last I knew. (or where it was the last time I saw it in 2008)

Based on reports from this thread and ATCS I believe V655 went into the hole at Elmdale about two hours ago and is still there. Possibly tied down.

Close on "D702", actually that D902. Probably hitting the signal issues out between Lako and Sunfield, that V train ran into them earlier as well.

Q327 all by Jenison at the stroke of midnight, GEVO leading an SD70AC and a SD60 with 153 mixed plus a blinkie. LOTS of bulkhead flats near the rear, looks like they're clearing out those storage tracks to make room for revenue switching in Wyoming.

From 3 blocks away, Q326 clear Zeeland at 0945 with 2 GEs and a lengthy train. So nice to see one of those cab-o-sil cars near the headend, bound for Flint and beyond! 2nd unit still in bright future.

Sounds like D70103 was involved as they are between Plymouth and South Lyon. D70203 is holding in between the switches at South Lyon.
2:15 update - d70103 and d70203 both back on the move, d702 east of south lyon and d701 west of south lyon.
