Thanks Tlout. Q326 and E801 met at Wells where Q326 checked out the EOT on E801 as E801 was having issues with it. That D801 apparently built E801 before leaving West Olive, then went to Grand Junction to leave their power there for the next load that needs a DPU to shove the train up the hill.

So we missed Q326 yesterday because of the detour at Pullman. What a pain.
