P370-27 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like AMTK 90368 leading.

No scanner with me tonight. But headlight spotted to the east of Woodbury while on bike ride. Assuming it is Q335. Will fire up super scanner and wait on the ground for confirmation.

Looked on heritageunits for the first time in a while, looks like it was removed... so I'm guessing it's the normal boring gray now. It had been sitting in Beech Grove for quite a while.

Edit... looked it up again, and yeah it's gray. https://hiveminer.com/Tags/90368

That was Q33427 with CSX 3454+4825+2676+7665 with 59 cars.

Meanwhile, Q327 by Howell at 07:08 this morning with 64 cars. CSX 874 leading, 7738 trailing. Even had eight auto rack cars in a row on it. Ok, so it was S33528. Unknown if the train came out of Toledo, or, they were all out of Detroit, Plymouth pick up cars because Q335 has been so long and heavy of late. Regardless, I can pretend and have fun, because this was the time period 327 used to go by Howell before they annulled the train out of Detroit many years ago, plus, the amount of cars they used to carry.

Late report on the Q326-28 of today: CSXT 460 and 155 leading with 55 cars, more Occidental hoppers than usual and three loaded gons of coiled wire for someone. They met D700 at Waverly who had 100 axles as reported and CSXT 6536 for power.

So Wabash1070 doesn't have to ask today, Q33527 is almost to Williamston now at 14:20. 7891+3432 with about the same amount of cars that S335 had earlier.
