E800 should be around Stevensville by now.
Q327-27 is currently going through Coloma. Sounds like CSXT 514 leading.

Plannersad’s report helps corroborate my own late night report from Zeeland:

2 covered hoppers on Plastcore’s siding so at least one of them was setoff yesterday.

Yellow former CNW covered hopper at Vandan Bosch feed. Has NOKL reporting marks but the logo looked like it might be in OK shape for any CNW fans out there. I havent been keeping a scientific report but this is somewhere around their 16th car of the year or so.

Z Limber spur was empty over the weekend so not surprised they had a setoff, too.

Sounds like Amtrak got their hour delay from that coal train attempting to double the hill. Not sure what's going on, but sounds like they're still messing with the train as D802-27...

11:46 - re-crewed coal train at Wells, will take first 65 up to the Saugatuck pass, then come back for other half.
