D700 came east through Holland with 2048 in the lead around 1015. Had an interesting consist of boxes, gravel hoppers (MOW?), BNSF hoppers, and a CP hopper. I believe it was also D700 that I heard run through Gville around 445 this morning.

Y121 worked Zeeland first. They then went up to switch near Tlout, where I got to see a near accident on James St. White SUV stopped for crossing lights, SUV behind them didn't see white car stopped, swerved to the left, locked up brakes going across crossing. I thought the SUV was going to roll but they fishtailed and got it back under control. Y121 finished switching, went to Waverly in Holland, and will be going onto the dock track in Holland around 10:45am.
Weed spray train w05318 is near Grand Junction, D700 is somewhere down west of Benton Harbor. Supposed to be a E801 running in a couple of hours. No word on if MMRR is running today.

Q329 with consist previously described by MA in Lansing at 08:55.

12:25 - CSXT 4385 and 8095, both facing west, heading east at MA lite power. D708? 8095 led Q329 by me a few hours before, so they must have swapped power and sent something else on to Wyoming. 8095 has its original cab and no AC units on the roof, a nice original SD40-2 profile for those folks into that kind of thing.

I'll bet they swapped the 8095 for the 2 CP GEs that brought in K862 yesterday that went back to Ensel after spotting the train.

Mr. CantBeShook.WeHot, I always like your system snapshots. If it is not difficult, could you occasionally post a snapshot that includes additional trains that run in and out of Detroit regularly, namely:

Q131/Q132
Q150/Q151
Q384/Q385
Q508/Q509
Q253
Q276 (sometimes as L276)

It looks (according to the symbols page) like there may be an occasional L211, L241, or Q298 but I don't know how often these run.
Thanks!
