Late report from 10AM:

D700 "squared off" with Y121 on the Holland Siding by holding east of Lakewood Blvd while Y121 brought its boxcars off the wye and into the yard at Waverly. D700 had a pair of CW44ACs (#441 and #235, I think?), and a short train of maybe 10 cars.

No train, but some angry motorists... from the Bangor cam, it appears that the M43/Monroe Street crossing gates are stuck down with no train.

PD is on site now. After looking at the past live feed, it looks like they've been periodically malfunctioning all day, however this time they won't go back up.

Lolz, yup... q384 just went into the siding at Fox at 11:21, while Q385 is just clearing Trowbridge in Lansing. If 384 didn't take 3-4 hours of on duty time until they finally left GR, could have made the meet at Trowbridge instead.

They've been stopped east of Grand Junction for some reason for a while... Think they're about to get back on the move.

Back on the move at 00:20. Think they were having issues with the air pressure...

Q385 west at CH 114 at 00:21.

Q327-29 at Porter CP-482 at 00:24.
