P371-28 is currently going through St. Joseph. Sounds like IDTX 4618 leading.

1032 hrs: D700 westbound moving onto the Single Track at Grandville behind CSXT 2332. Not sure if they are going long today or not.

EDIT: 19.1 readout - only 36 axles, and 8 of those are locomotive axles, so just 7 cars today.

By New Baltimore around 1430. Nice clean ACe leader. In the siding (Grand Jct., I think?) to meet N801, will shove them up the Hill then return to their empty train.

As of 1550: D700 EB at Zeeland. Y121 came out after them at 112th to switch Zeeland. Sounds like D700 dropped their slug set in Holland for Y121 to use.

D70828, CSX 8613+8017 went to South Lyon today to pick up the two CN SD70-I units 5605 & 5610 they delivered to Peaker on October 6th. On the way back west, they picked up 58 cars off the Howell pass,, 55 of which were delivered to CSX by GLC on Tuesday. Departing west to Lansing at 17:10 they will leave their train on one of the mains for D707 to pick up, go back into the yard from the east end, and return to Howell to bring 48 more cars for GLC later this evening. Sounded to me like the two CN units were running, but not on line.
