17:53 - Eastbound coal loads by Vine. 3 BNSF leaders. SD70ACe, SD70MAC executive, and an ES44.

Sounded like a westbound, prolly empties, went thru Vine at about 18:30.

Q38525 by Fowlerville at 21:00. Don't plan on hearing them on the radio clearly, if at all. 385 had to hold at Howell for awhile waiting for D708 who is going back west from Fowlerville with only light power. Even with only 19 cars they were forced to turn around and go home without finishing their work for lack of time, leaving their train there.

The radio was breaking up badly, but I believe they are going to hold 385 on the east side of Lansing to make a rolling meet with 384.

P370-27 is currently going through Watervliet. Sounds like IDTX 4621 leading.

Switch just lined for 385 to head west from Ensel.

The EL unit is in the lead with another NS trailing.

Edit.

D707 has 5241 & 5295, and is westbound out of Lansing at 00:40.

Everyone keep an eye out for NS 1074 on Y106 this morning. I'm at Judd in Grand Rapids waiting for them to leave.

Ns1074 came in on y106 into GR. Heading downtown to spin their power, and likely going out on q384 now tonight instead of q327.

Crew is assembling what I believe to be Y297 down here at the east end. A GP38-3, two empty Gons for Joe Brown, a loaded centerbeam, a sand hopper and a white hydrochloric acid hopper. All for the Acme lead maybe?
