I think you're hearing S32731 as I just heard them going by Hudsonville. q32730 went by Jochs n Folks earlier today.
Figured tonights was Q and earlier was an S. They called Grandville as 327.
The Q run first then the S train

S38529 approaching Fowlerville at 13:30 with 193 cars. CSX 412+7910+3167. There was a second grain empty by Howell at 04:30, CSX 414+8077 with 87 cars. Would have had to have gone to Grand Ledge if it didn't go all the way to GRP.

Going to assume that's the train BL2 saw around 4am, should have 414 and 8077 as power

Probably won't have that power when it leaves. Not going to make it up the hill at Ann Pere with just an AC4400 and an SD40-2.

S385 is on hold somewhere near Woodbury due to an issue with a power poll around Haddix Rd near Lake Odessa.

By DD91.9 at 8:47pm, 724 axles, 10798 ft.
Sounds like they're holding the main, while Amtrak will take the siding at Livingston.
