Q384 called clear at Fowlerville even though it was actually Green Oak. Came back and corrected as South Lyon a few seconds later, still actually Green Oak.
636 axles 9341 feet. CSXT 390 leading.
Called East end of SL at the West end.
Called 34 at East end. Might giggle if he calls Salem at 34. Guess the detector wasn't enough of a hint.
1:29 Nope, he called Green Oak at 34.... I'm confused
Maybe it's just been a long night.

Nope the conductor has been out here for a few years and still has no clue where he is.

That would be 5212 & 5220 for the CSX units. CN 5722 may be on its way to Peaker Service in Brighton for repair.

Q38529, CSX 4576 & NS 4043 by Howel at 13:15 with 87 cars. About an equal amount of CSX grain cars that came on 385 several days ago. Perhaps a half train at a time instead of running a V-train.
