The eastbound is at West end of Fox @ 7:17 (99% sure it's 384, but never assume things is something I've learned)
99% sure it's NOT 384, as the post above yours says it was at Williamston earlier, and post before that says Jetlink saw it in Woodbury last night. Quite sure your eastbound was D70729, who just went by Lake Odessa a short bit ago.

With a usual on average three hour run from GRP to Howell, and leaving GRP at 9:48 PM per "Z" was expecting Q384 shortly after 01:00, and, would have been close if they were not held at Williamston. More than anything, the track in Fowlerville at Van Riper road was out of service due to an automobile stuck on the tracks. Q385 went by me at 01:45 but slowly knowing they would be held at Fowlerville for awhile. CSX 256+7765+3260 with 176 cars. Q384 finally made it by Howell at 03:35 with 7795 leading as reported earlier, and 3431 trailing. The DD showed 468 axles (jetlink was close) including its two units which would equal 114 cars, yet I counted 140. Don't know how the difference could be that far apart. Now you know the rest of the story and details.

J3rsdm5 is wasting his time "guessing" what an eastbound lined up is on the opposite side of the state well out of his own territory.

I... uh... hmm. :| I think I've proven to myself and everyone else that I should just shut up and stick with where I live and what I absolutely know.
I'll keep up the westbounds at SL once my face is a normal color again.

Sorry guys. :/

There’s nothing wrong with taking a guess at what a train might be. Keep on trucking, J3, we appreciate your updates and input as much as anyone else!

Westbound lined out of the siding at Elmdale. Y106? Not lined through Fox...

Eastbound on the main presumably getting ready to go east @Elmdale...no signal yet
It’s not whether you win or lose, but rather how many pages you add to the rulebook

No it is Y106 for sure.

Edit:

I should add, (I'm not trying to be a pretentious dink; that's what I sounded like, sorry) that's what it looks like when Y106 does the run around at Elmdale. That's the normal sequence of events and how it looks on the ATCS usually. East bound, leave train on main, clear ee elmdale (the line up shows all the way to Lake O though as it is the next controlled signal), then west through the pass (again it shows clear all the way though to Fox as this is the next controlled signal), back to the train on the main, Then they get clear signals west again even though they don't take them all right away as they only go west to alto initially.

Q327-30 is currently going through Watervliet. Sounds like CSXT 256 leading.
