Lot of static, but sounded like 512 axles, 7024 feet at 91.9 DD.

P370-30 west through Bangor at 22:00 with Charger, 3 Superliners, and another Charger trailing.

Q327-31 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like CSXT 3054 leading.
Sounds like they are going to Michigan City to meet Amtrak.

Did not know they went there until they came back. On Tuesday, they went there with one tank car for Portec, today they went east with 15 cars that I thought were all GLC cars, yet when they came back west by me AFTER switching GLC they only had one car with them and the Portec car was not it. Not sure why they went there today but It wasn't to take a locomotive to Peaker. If they picked one up, they sat it off for GLC.

There's a new covered hopper on the Vanden Bosch grain spur in Zeeland, reporting marks NDYX. I think this is about their 9th car this year. The previous car with ATW reporting marks was picked up earlier this week.
