327 clear Grandville. CSX AC4400 and an NS Dash 9 are the power. Don’t let the horn fool you.

NB mixed freight idling in the siding at Middle River, with CSX 4557 + 295 + 2616 leading.

19:15 UPDATE: It is Q385, doing work in North Yard. Just got clearance to back across the diamond and hook up with the rest of its train south of Lilley Rd.

I found Q327 struggling to get out of the Macatawa River valley at signal 28 around 7:10. They shoulda left the Lackawanna leader on the NS pair and just added CSXT 966 - readout at 19.1 detector was over 11,300'. Lots of scrap loads, tanks, and a 5-pack of empty wells at the very tail end.

When Q385 arrives at Wyoming from points east, how much of it is typically forwarded traffic that is just trying to get to Chicago via Q327?

P370-28 is currently going through Watervliet. Sounds like IDTX 4621 leading.
Q327-28 is currently going through St. Joseph. Looked like CSXT 966 leading with NS 94?9 trailing on the Bangor cam.

q384 usually called around 7pm or so, takes off out of GR around 9-10pm most nights. Left a little early tonight, was by Lake Odessa a little after 9pm. NS 1074 was on the train. As the same with last night, can't hear anything as NS1074 calls out each signal.. what sounds like blank audio coming in for each signal.

Most of the stuff 385 picks up in Plymouth ends up going to Chicago on 327.
