If Q334/335 are back, does that mean 326/327 are going to get smaller again?

MOST LIKELY. Q327 WAS 166 CARS LAST NIGHT. I COULD SEE WHERE THIS TRAIN WOULD DROP BACK DOWN TO 60-90 CARS WITH LOSTING THE STUFF COMING IN FROM THE EAST.

I thought Wally World was the twilight zone. Cars go in but don't come out.
What changed?

Will this be a ballpark time for 334 in the future? I'd like to try and catch it Thursday if I can.

Traditionally Q334 is an 18 hour train so if that is continued your looking around 3-4 tomorrow if not expect it this time tomorrow. Anyone have an update on Q335?

No Q335 today. That 18 hour schedule thing has been gone for months.

Q334 down the Plymouth sub for the first time since Feb. 25th, 2016 when the last train ran as X33425, because they were then on the 28 hour schedule with a different prefix number each day, and then pulls into the Howell pass to meet short on time D70812 who went to South Lyon today, and now making a mad dash back to Lansing. Todays first trip east had 5416 leading, 4288,4706,5456 trailing, all four units facing east. Thought the DD at Fowlerville showed it with 81 cars, but could have misheard it, as I counted 77 cars.

There is an X36913, with a long train and 9400 tons with CSX 4809+5487 coming north, already long past Alexis. They originally wanted to have Q334's crew and X359s crew change trains at Plymouth but have now gone to plan B. The Walbridge crew will take Q334s train on to Walbridge and 334s crew will taxi there. Another crew will now take X369 onto GRP whenever they can get one there. It was, a good meet between 334 & 708 as Q334 wasn't here long.

Edit: Q334 took its train to Carleton where the Walbridge crew took it on from there.

P370-12 is currently departing St. Joseph. Sounds like AMTK 61 leading.

Q334-12 with aforementioned power just passed me in downtown South Lyon at about 9:23 PM. Missed that D708.

X369-13 still by Erie according to scanner.
