According to a friend, a northbound CSX Herzog train cleared John Hix Road in Westland, MI at 9:38 AM. I am unsure on whether it went to Flint or turned west at Plymouth.

12:45hrs: something, Q326 I believe, just got a push up Saugatuck Hill. Scanner says they are presently taking a clear at EE Saugatuck. Not a long train today, 388 axles, so it must be heavy. Stone loads perhaps? Lead locomotive is 8200, not sure what railroad.

I believe the headend was recrewed as D801 when the helpers tied on at Wells. 8200 and another BNSF GEVO both elephant style led the train. There were about a dozen stone hoppers in the consist. Lots of boxcars and loaded centerbeams of lumber as well. BNSF helper set rode all the way into Wyoming Yard. With that extra S326 from a couple days back, there may be at least one extra set of power floating around West Michigan.

Interesting. I thought the ES44C4's weren't allowed on the Hill anymore on account of stalling.

8200 and the other BNSF on the headend were the regular 326 power. They are only kept off of the coal trains, anything else is fair game.

S326 came out of Barr, Q326 came out of Clearing. Q326 ran down the Elsdon sub, so it ran PAST Barr, but didn't pick up there.
