More details from earlier today:

Michigan Shore 2025, 2019 with 6 hoppers, 2 tank cars south at Riley St. Holland 10:30 AM.


They arrived at Holland Waverly Yard at 10:45. That HESR 2025 is one shiny locomotive!

D700 was waiting for Z627's arrival. They cut in the 8 cars from Muskegon behind 7 loaded scrap gons from Padnos and ahead of 18 other cars of mixed freight from elsewhere in west Michigan for their run back to Grand Rapids. They departed Holland around 11AM and I caught them near the Vriesland signal behind CSXT GP38-3 #2034.

The action continued after noon. Z627 received their EC-1 to take their interchange cars north. Y121, with CSXT #2030 for power, went to switch the Ottawa Beach Branch. Q326 rolled east past the Holland depot just after 12:30 with a lengthy train. Very closely behind Q326, W003 Track Geometry Train behind CSXT #9969 went east inspecting the rail on the main track.

Nice to run into ~Z~ at the Holland Depot!

Something's up with Q326... they're stopped. D700 stopping at the Bangor Depot to get a bite to eat since they can't go anywhere.
D700 east at Bangor at 11:37. CSXT 2039.

EDIT 1211 - Bad car... Sounds like D700 will pull part of train back past switches at Grand Jct, put bad car in siding, and push train back together.
