Close, heard him later calling Plymouth. CSX G919-01 cleared the wye at Plymouth about an hour later, hauling 94 grain loads from Grand Ledge, MI to Waycross, GA.

I was by the elevator in Grand Ledge today there is still a huge pile of grain stored on the ground.

Woah! I believe I just saw a Union Pacific loco along with an ex-SP loco sitting right in front of the east tower in Wyoming yard.

You did see that UP and patched SP combo. Facebook says it came in on 326 this morning and will go out on 327 tonight. The espee unit might even lead west! Unfortunately, Q327 is back on a 2100 call time now that it is routed to Clearing Yard.

P370-01 is currently departing St. Joseph. Sounds like AMTK 45 leading.

Cool while it lasted! Was nice seeing them pass thru SJ right after 370. Sunset is getting earlier, so wouldn't be seeing them as much for the next few seasons anyway.

Is Q326 still on the same call time as it's been for the last few months? Or back to the old nighttime runs up the GRS?

BTW, according to FB, 326 today had UP 7741, UP 6216 (SP). These were taken during the day... So I'm guessing call time is still about the same.

I didn't see it today, but 4226 has been the power each time I have seen D708 for the last 3-4 weeks.

Passing through downtown Holland as of a few minutes ago. Cool hearing them through town at night.

This power was on Q326 yesterday.

Think I'm hearing N800's horn around Grey. Q327 around Kirk, meeting N800 on double track.

N800 at Riverside, Q327 between Gray and Riverside at 1:30am.
edit: 1:40am: N800-01 headed east at Coloma. D801 at Wells.

Another EB by St. Joe Bridge at about 12:10. Only got a quick glimpse while driving over a bridge, but it looked like light power with a yellow nose leader (UP?). D700 back east already?

Did D700 return to Wyoming yard? That SP patch didn't go out on 327 last night and was part of the power for D700 today.

It looks like the CSXT-BNSF lash-up from Q326 this morning has been wyed and spotted at the west end of Wyoming Yard for Q327 tonight. The UP-SP lash-up is parked near East Tower.
