Sounded like MMRR was likely north of West Olive enroute back to Muskegon at 10:51am, heard them giving up their EC1 at that point.

Is there any pattern as to when the CSX intermodals will run via Plymouth versus running on the Lincoln Secondary?

CSX Q131 takes the Lincoln Secondary 99.9% of the time.
This train usually departs Detroit around a 8:00 PM average, reaching Carleton around two hours later (unsure why it takes so long for this particular train). This train now runs everyday.

CSX Q132 also takes the Lincoln Secondary, but once in a while can run to Plymouth which is just based off of Detroit congestion levels. Q132 hits Carleton anywhere from mid-morning to mid-afternoon. As this train has been on it's trip for much longer, there's more instances that could occur to cause the train to be delayed for various reasons.

CSX Q151 is routed via Plymouth due to working Oak Yard (this yard is the adjacent yard you can see whole driving on I-96/ Jeffries Fwy. However, on rare days where 1) it doesn't need to work Oak Yard, and 2) CSX Q507 or another mammoth train is blocked on the main having some sort of issue, it can run via the Lincoln Secondary.
Q151 reaches Plymouth at an average of noon to 2 PM.

CSX Q150 has been taking the Lincoln Secondary the past week, so time will tell if this trend changes. Regardless of the route it takes, arrives between the late afternoon and early evening.

P370-01 is currently going though Coloma. Sounds like AMTK 76 leading.
E800-01 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like BNSF 9052 leading.

MDOT reported roadway failure in downtown Bangor at 1:58am. Both east and westbound lanes of M-43 were closed due to a disabled train. (Q327?) As of 3:52am, they still report M-43 closed.

Checking on E800, reported thru Benton Harbor at 9:32pm Fri nite, 8/31.

In Fennville, 9:40am, Sat, 9/1. All signal blocks Red, both N and S and no coal trains on siding south of town.

So don't know if E800 already thru, or held down at Bangor.

Heading to Bangor.
