Around 2015 hrs what I assume was Q327 just rolled thru Zeeland. Can't access the scanner right now but am interested to know the lead unit number. It has a spooky horn, maybe former conrail?

That would be CSX 3323, ET44AH, according to my sources, manufactured in 2015.
Based off of some YouTube videos, sounds like a K5HLL-R2

Major last minute change of plans for D708. They were brought to Howell to be sure and get the GLC pick up and set off done and will die here. CSX 5333+523 with 29 cars went east at 20:55. Meanwhile, and with a super short train, Q38526 ran through the siding and is now approaching Fowlerville at 21:24. CSX 591+571+436 with only 55 cars.

Heard three trains over night. One was probably a Q385. The others D707 each way maybe?

Indeed, CSX 5234 and all intermodal (131 platforms) Very impressive. Have not seen the likes of that here since the Q195-196 days. 384 was here long before midnight. D708 was recrewed by a D908 and returned west to Lansing from Howell at 02:05.
