I was thinking the same thing. They didn't but when they came back west by Howell at 18:30 they had 76 cars after their Ann Pere pick up including a long cut of Stone or ballast cars among other things. Not quite sure how all these cars got set off at South Lyon or Brighton, or by who. Currently stopped at Fowlerville waiting for track people ahead to clear up and now leaving there with red blocks at 19:07..

N800-30 is currently going through St. Joseph. Sounds like BNSF 8410 leading, and they'll be going in the siding at Grand Junction for P370.

P370-30 is currently departing St. Joseph. Sounds like AMTK 123 leading.
N800-30 is out of my scanner range, but should be somewhere up around Bangor by now.

Q38528, or possibly S38528, is currently meeting Q38430 in Fowlerville at 22:00. 385 has CSX 4723+7704 with 121 cars, Q334 has 3393+350 with 70 cars. 61 container platforms on the head end for Plymouth. GLC in Howell waiting for Q384 to clear with GLC 392 on the head end to set 57 cars off in the Howell pass for tomorrows D708, but will also have to wait for a Webberville grain empty first. As the RN told the GLC crew, when calling three times to get onto CSX, "we have a lot more traffic here than we used to" (not that they didn't notice)
