Q329, with the aforementioned UP power, by Seymour at 16:23. 126 cars by my count, head 40ish looked like GLCs picked up at Lansing.

P370-29 is currently going through Riverside. Sounds like IDTX 4601 leading.

Just like Q327-28 last night, Q327-29 just got dinged by the CG 66.2 DD. 4 hotboxes... UP 7748, UP 8819 should be the leaders.

N801 moving eastbound from the NS to CSX at CP-482 in Porter at 01:35 ET. They need an EC1 because CG 131.3 DD is back in service.

01:45 - Q327-29 is about to be under way after having a partially set handbrake on the last car and some other brake issue on the 73rd car. Will tie down in New Buffalo, next crew isn’t until almost 06:00.

Q326-30 eastbound at Vine CG 92 at 11:07. CSXT 258, CSXT 207. Long, slow train... guessing it might have a bad EOT.

EDIT, the EOT is fine, Hilltop Rd @ CG 90 has a 15 MPH speed restriction, that's why they were going so slow.

EB lined out of GR through Fox, not through Elmdale yet, looks like there might be MOW working Lake Odessa. Suspecting a late Q328. Anyone know what the hourglass means under the name of a CP?

Dispatcher trying to take down signal and it’s timing out? Just a guess, never have seen that.

Keep in mind, there’s heat warnings in effect everywhere on CSX for any stretch of line above 30 mph.
