Either Q38527 or Q38528 seeing they were neck and neck north of Walbridge earlier. No problems with radios here as I heard him clearly at Brighton and again at Fowlerville where they are now.
CSX 775+997+4828+3096. They had a good 30-40 grain cars behind the Plymouth pick up, or, a part of the Plymouth pick up. Grain trains for both Webberville and Grand Ledge have been few and far between so far in 2018. Especially considering many going north at Plymouth and GLC running many from various elevators on their line.

SB D737 just cleared 7 Mile Rd. CSX 2626 leading.
SB D736 cleared maybe 20 minutes earlier, with CSX ??47 leading, maybe 3047.
Even earlier heard dispatcher talking to D735 about meeting D736 at South Clyde a couple hours before.

Q327 is currently around Watervliet. Sounds like CSXT 775 leading. Sounds like they'll hold up in Benton Harbor for Amtrak, so they won't be headed west from there until probably sometime after 9:15 pm, unless P370 is late.

21:50 EDT SOUNDS LIKE Y297 WAS INVOLVED IN A CAR/TRAIN ACCIDENT UP NEAR FULLER. DISPATCHER CALLED THEM TO STOP THEIR TRAIN. SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE DROVE INTO THE SIDE OF THE TRAIN. DETAILS TO FOLLOW.

Edit: trainmaster headed their way. Can't make out where they are.
