NB D737 cleared 7 Mile Rd. at 21:00. Couldn't see the power in the dark (was on my bike), but it was hauling about 25 open hoppers.

I guess you both missed all of the updates saying a UP SD70M was leading Q329 yesterday :roll:

Q32806, about as late as Q32805 was early yesterday, by Howell at 08:44, CSXT 867+946, power from yesterdays Q326, with 143 cars. Around 30 auto racks scattered throughout the entire train. Hard to count cars and finger count the racks. Maybe 28, maybe 33. 328 met Q32906 at Brighton, who was by Howell at 09:18 CSXT 801+3443 about as overpowered with almost as few cars as yesterday, having 24 cars today.

q32906 west at Lake Odessa noon, stopped on the main between the switches.. Appears to be a lot of MOW out there this morning blocking the main between elmdale and lake odessa, as well as Fox to Elmdale. Guessing Y106 is in the siding at Fox.

P370-06 is currently departing St. Joseph. Sounds like IDTX 4601 leading.
Q327-06 is currently in Benton Harbor. Sounds like CSXT 801 leading.
edit: Q327 west at St. Joseph at 9:26pm, P370 east at Gray

Today's overpowered Q32907, worse than the last two, was by Howell at 09:30 with CSXT 5379 + U.P. 6594 with only 8 cars. That's less than 50 cars in three days. Earlier, Q32807 went east by Howell at 07:02 with CSXT 863+4016+2048 and 70 cars. Five auto racks, which means yesterdays Q328 had 28 racks.
