D708 had a pair of SD40-3 units with 28 cars today, about half were CSXT junk tie loads. Much smaller than the 63 cars they took east yesterday, or which half or so were also junk tie loads.

1 empty centerbeam picked up from Cashway Lumber on Grand River last night as well.

Running 48 minutes behind W-008 as reported earlier, Q32918 went west by Howell at 15:20 with 55 cars. His single unit was the trailing unit on this mornings Q328. D708 in the siding at Fowlerville for both and will go to Brighton to turn as the 60 cars set off for GLC yesterday are still in the Howell pass. Am beginning to wonder if yesterdays ribbon rail train for GLC isn't being unloaded here locally as they have been in town most of the day.

P370-18 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like IDTX 4601 leading.

K52019 running from the BNSF in Chicago tonight to Grand Rapids. Some sort of unit train for CHS in Wayland on the Grand Elk. Supposedly the power will run through with the train.

Did I also see online elsewhere that there would be DPU's on this train?

Yes, yes you did. Don't know if they'll continue to Wayland with them though. I sorta doubt if anyone on GDLK is DPU qualified.
And if they are running 4 BNSF units on the west Olive stuff....it would seem that a lot of BNSF locos will be piling up in WO or they will run 4 south/west a lot on empties...fascinating. Which IMHO is why BNSF didn't want to do that in the first place...c'est la vie. I'm not there anymore...8-)
Enjoy Every Sandwich.
