Unless something changes for the better, the last D701 from Flint was by Howell at 11:32 with CSX 7777 & UP 8717 and 54 cars. SURE NICE while it lasted for four weeks with two noon time trains Monday to Friday and one each way on the weekends. They WILL be missed !!!

Currently going by Hilltop. Sounds like BNSF 8453 leading.

Any updates on D701? Been sitting at Thornapple for the last 2 hours and haven't heard jack on the radio 'bout it.

Wished you or somebody would have seen this, and not just heard it. This was another Willard train with a slew of locomotives and another very long train. Due to an unexpected ant problem in the bedroom last night, forgot to turn on my scanner. Awoke only as is it was bearing down on me and got to the window only in time to get the flood lights and my glasses on, let alone paper and pencil in hand. CSX 7905 was leading, a CN unit in the consist somewhere and I think a U.P. too along with several CSX units. At last five or more. This train went by Howell at the exact same time as Friday mornings X394 train. (03:10)

Should've been 3 CSX engines with a CN SD75I and a BNSF Gevo thrown in too, 130ish cars by my guess. Not sure of the symbol.

Q326-28 sitting at 64th ave in Vriesland because the Zeeland detector detected 4 defects on the train so now they're inspecting the whole thing. CSXT 7774, CSXT 5105, and CSXT 7855 on the point.

Do we have a D907 anywhere in the area? I was hearing on the scanner earlier that once D907 arrived in Wyoming that they would get taxied out to Grand Ledge and assist X503 but I haven't heard anything.
