D700 has some turbines/rotors from the D.C. Cook Plant in Bridgman bound for Grand Rapids now. They also worked Sawyer today. CSXT 2034 is one (or maybe the only) engine.

A piece of MOW equipment just went through Jenison westbound. Looked like a tamper.

D700 is all done at Waverly, ready to head east. RN Is asking that MOW crew to clear up.

Meanwhile, Y297 was at Godfrey, has a nice detour for the GRE

19:02: Y297 just finished working Haviland. They'll run around and work Padnos, then pickup all the GRE goodies. After returning to Wyoming, they'll head back north with two dozen for the GRE.

20:38: G010 okay out the Mouse, 33 Lead to the Even Lead out to Lamar, then they'll run back east. Sounds like Lite power for grain train assembly at Webberville or Grand Ledge.
20:40: D801 west with 532 axles at DD44.2.
20:45: Y297 departing Wyoming with a mini grain train. G010 also lined east with a clear at Plaster Creek on the Main.

Ahh it was an E801, not a D801. Thought it was odd to send empties without needing to push loads as a D-job.

Curse "D" and "E" from sounding so similar. :lol:

CSXT 8089 East thru Williamston @ 0445. He called himself D707... I thought that was a GR to Lansing train?

Sounds like a maintainer just released authority from Woodbury to the switch at the west end Grand Ledge

D702 04 Getting authority from Lake O - Ensel; currently between Clarksville and Lake O. Engine CSXT 8145 leading.

Who ever they are meeting is currently at Kearsley, I think it was, according to the RN.

D707 relieved yesterday's D708 at Howell last night at 23:30. 707 was here until 03:08 switching Ann Pere as there was lots of work picking up cars off the transfer and passing siding and spotting more cars into the transfer for GLC. Then, D707 sat a Fowlerville for over an hour waiting for the G010 crew to come east from Webberville with the empty potash train. CSX 471+57 by Howell at 04:22.

Got a report of some flatcars in Holland, MI today, 5-04-17, that have turbine blades on them. Probley from the retired from the Cobb plant. Might be worth some pictures.
