CSXT 8089 West sitting in the OS at WE Williamston. My son ran down and talked to the crew flagging cars through the crossing at Putnam St. Sounds like they died on HOS. He didn't catch a train number... Odd place to stop a train if they knew they would have to wait for a recrew...

Sounds like they won't be needing a pilot today.

Question. So 321/322 were regularly running 150 - 190 cars. Where's all that traffic going?

It's all on D701/702 now. The reason the D-trains have been shorter is that 321/322 were only running a few days per week, while the D trains are running at least 6 times a week each.

Close but no Cigar. That was D701 with 3157 leading. Meanwhile, if you left to soon, G65502 grain empty for Webberville is currently at Williamston running around their train to spot it back to Webberville. CSX 5469+719. By Howell at 12:45pm. Both units facing west, so they will either have to get a 3rd unit facing east for the load, or bring the power to GRP to spin it.

ATCS shows what I believe to be D701, currently between Lake O and Elmdale, meeting a train in the hole at Elmdale. D701 should have the line up all the way to Seymour.
