As of 12:02am, it was parked at the station in Grand Rapids. AMTK 56 will lead tomorrow with 3 superliners and AMTK 90229 trailing.

I'm in downtown St. Joseph, hearing the horn of a westbound train. Did Q327 run tonight, or is this an empty coal train?

Extra Y106 with CSX 2062 is on duty, going to switch the gas at Alto. Should be leaving the yard in about an hour.

hi dave
327 had approx. 185 cars, some 10,000' working with 2nd and 3rd trick dispatchers that didn't know the terr.
327 sat east of Hudsonville for approx. an hour waiting to run through the siding to meet 370
then 3rd trick sent 327 into wy siding at 112th and ran them into the yard to make their setoff ( 112th, Lakewood, and 120th blocked
for approx. an hour during the setoff ) then ran 327 through the yard onto the main at Holland .

Q33529, CSXT 7792+5305+7915 with 155 cars (92 loads and 63 empties) approaching Fowlerville at 17:00. Most of the loads are a stone train on the head end, (around 40)

Far as I know, the power from yesterdays Webberville grain empty still sits at Howell to get the rest of Q33528s train at Plymouth ??

NB through Romulus. CSX 410 and 703. 6:10 pm. Q253-29 heading for Wayne with autoracks. Will run lite from Wayne to Rougemere. If I heard right, two different Q253s were at New Boston at the same time. The crew from one of the trains left two engines tied back-to-back near Northline Rd.

P370-01 is currently departing St. Joseph. Sounds like AMTK 90229 leading.
