P370-30 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like IDTX 4615 leading.

Caught a short train westbound tonight at clark road 1 mile west of Woodbury/M66 at about 2300. CSX 751 was leading another unit. They had a CH and 6 black tanks on the rear. Almost looked like a Y106 going to work Alto. I think they were going in the pass at Lake O to work Twin city. not 100% sure though.

Sounds like D707. The hopper and tanks were likely for the ethanol plant in Woodbury.

At11:15, Q329 passed MA in Lansing with CSXT 3128 solor with 61 cars. Lots of crushed stone, again.

Earlier, at 10:10, JAIL NB with just the GP9 1758 and a single coil car.

EDIT: at 12:00, D708 departed Ensel EB with 29 cars behind CSXT 4083 and 751. Lots of gons with junk ties aboard, also three boxcars which doesnt seem to be a frequent car type. At the same time, Q329 was making a lengthy pickup at WE ,Ensel, while the JAIL was arriving from the CN interchange to make a CSX pickup.

After CSX insisted on D801 only pushing Q326 up the hill, and making N801 double the hill with the extra engines only allowed to help the double up front, they will allow N801 to be shoved... :roll:
