Does there happen to be ATCS for eastern Plymouth sub, like South Lyon and Brighton?

No. There is a Plymouth area one I believe.

Eastbound stopped short of the crossing at M-66. 6:44am. It was dark no scanner. No other info available. Either working the ethanol plant, waiting for a recrew, or something is wrong.

D707 was heading east from GR at about 0525. I would wager you saw them.

Forgot to post this yesterday, but on Thursday, 335? WB with #874 leading was parked at Patterson Ave between 1:30 and 3:30 pm. Looked like a new crew arrived around 3:30.

At 0930 hrs, D700 was rolling west at Zeeland with 48 axles behind CSXT 2048.

Meanwhile, Q326 with CSXT 7877 leading was coming up to the Holland Depot.

For the record, yesterday the old Zeeland Lumber switchback crossing at Elm Street in Zeeland was removed, leaving a disconnected segment of track to the west. This has been out of service for the past couple years after Zeeland Lumber reconfigured their siding arrangement. Bummer to see this bit of Zeeland's rail history disappear.

What looks like a Q334 is stopped and blocking Main St. and Farmer St. also. I see engines on the south end - CN 5659 + CSX 6509.
19:30 UPDATE: moving again.
