D702 net D701 at South Lyon. D70104 CSX 9028+7756 with 128 cars by Howell at 13:22. Only three hours and 30 minutes from Flint to Howell today. The last 50-60 cars were all tanks, a lot more than that in their entire train.

What I believe was D702 just passed east through Lake Odessa. Missed the power but fairly long train. More than the 30ish cars of the last few days for sure.
