Another precision railroading doozy:

CSX Q507-27 departed Rougemere Yard at 3:23 AM. Currently is at Michigan Avenue, CH 11 as of 4:50 AM and is having issues (not surprised):

CSXT ES44AH #830
CSXT ET44AH #3307
277 cars long & 17,248 feet.

Eastbound onto the CSX in Porter at CP-482 at 10:45.

Q326-27 eastbound through Stevensville at 12:00 ET and has:
-CSXT 5382
-CSXT 8095
-CSXT 3163
-119 cars

Cars 2 and 4 looked to be high/wide transformers on 8 axle cars. This is a 30 MPH train.

EDIT:
At 66.2 DD at 13:07. 502 axles, 6796 feet. D802 with BNSF 6430 leading is westbound headed to Wells, will push 326 up the hill later. Another job will be on duty to re crew 326, who expires at 1500.
Edit again, both trains all stopped and tied down at Wells as of 14:10. There was a loose cable between the second and third engine, so they couldn't ever get up to track speed.
15:00- Crews tying on pushers in the last few minutes before expiring.
15:55- D801 (326) east at CG 28.

Saw an eastbound train through Woodbury at 12:28. CSX 53 leading. Looked like about 40-50 cars. I forgot the second units # but it was CSX 6 axle of some sort facing west. No scanner so no symbol but it looked like all the usual cars for a D707 or D907. First day light train I've seen east of Grand Rapids since May I believe.
