I think 327 is passing y106 west of lake o somewhere. when 327 came through Lansing they were talking about 106 running around their train at lake o then trying to stay ahead of 327 as they worked west.

P370-28 is currently going through Coloma. Sounds like IDTX 4621 leading.

Sounds like, about an hour ago, Q327 hit a downed tree around CG 102.3. A handrail was slightly bent, but they were able to leave. At least they got it out of the way, since the Siemens Chargers don't seem to do well against trees. :lol:

Detroit sub ATCS is showing a westbound at Hines Park. (CH24.1) Not receiving anything from the Plymouth diamond, so not sure if it's going to continue West. (Anyone who usually monitors this layout, is the Plymouth Diamond usually unreachable?)

As it turns out, that was Q32730, by EE South Lyon at 7:50.
By Trowbridge at 9:12.

Plymouth diamond is dark on ATCS. I'm told it was so ever since a fire in the yard office several years ago. Also dark from Middle River south to Sibley due to cutover to satellite.
