Sounds like D70727 is at the west end of Wyoming Yard in GR this morning, dunno how far east they'll make it, if at all, before the crew's time dies.

And hearing there's a D90728 with a crew taxing soon, so D707 ain't going to make it far.
9:52am - D707 tying the train down at Godfrey in GR awaiting D907 crew.

D90728 was east at Burton in GR at 1pm, CSXT 7894 and CSXT 5241 leading about 40 cars. Lots of newer looking covered hoppers in a block, FURX 852463 one of them.
Per the scanner archive as of 12:30pm, sounds like Q326 is stalled at MP 34.5 (saugatuck hill). D700 went by the stop signal at west end saugatuck at that time. q326 was 5225' in length going by Wells, has CSXT 170 and CSXT 5386 for power. Y121 was also starting onto the dock track in Holland at that time.
As of 3pm, Y121 was also going west towards Saugatuck to go help Q326 and D700 get the train up the hill, what a mess.

NB D737 cleared 7 Mile Rd. about 5 minutes ago. Sounded like CSX 6694 leading.
Another NB cleared about an hour ago. Scanner was silent; guessing it was D735.

Hearing Q38428 whistling east out of Grand Rapids at 9pm. Q32728 is down near Watervilet, going to meet Amtrak p37028 on the doubletrack in Benton Harbor.
Looks like q327 had some of the power used on q326 and maybe d700's power too.
