Q32624 will have SD40-3 4229 and another MP!5T, 1212 with 68 cars into GRP this afternoon. 1212 will either be joining 1213 already there, to give them two or to replace it. GRP used to have more than that back in the day.
admin edit: q326 east by Bangor at 11:50am, sitting at Wells for past hour as of 1pm. Admin added attachment. BL2-1843 has nothing to do with the attachment, other than his post alerting me to the likelyhood that he was watching the Bangor railcam to see the switcher, and I then reported on it with an attachment.

Z151 into the East end with MQT 33oilyninerwithoutthesilvertrucks, TPW rocket pop, MMRR 2057, MQT 3407, MQT 3406.

D802 with BNSF power is around Holland going down to push 326 who's at Wells.

329 is just about put away

Let it be known that BL2-1843 had nothing to do with the attachment photo to my post on Q326 earlier that has the switcher on it.

In order of appearance, morning trains by Howell. V76422, grain empty for Webberville (finally) went west at 05:30. CSX 832+858 with 88 cars. Q32925, CSX 3067+1709 went west at 07:37 with 24 cars. Q32825 went east at 08:08, CSX 853+5494 with 111 cars. 328-329 met at Fowlerville. 328 took siding with their 111 cars, while 329 held the main with their 24 cars. Webberville grain empty had to wait for both 328 & 329 at Williamston before going back to Webberville to spot the train and are on their way to doing so now.

The boxcars go to the Stow Company just north of Riley. The cenerbeams go to De Luuw lumber on the Ottawa Beach branch.

Speaking of Zeeland, for any fans of the cascade green, there was a great looking non-graffitied BN covered hopper on the spur at Vanden Bosch Feed early this morning. Car #467002. Might get picked up by Y121 today. This is about their 18th car of the year.

That wb 90 car grain train just cleared MA in Lansing at 13:05. D708 was east around 12:30 with just a single covered hopper. no JAIL today.

D708 in Howell now at 15:20 to put the one car into the Howell pass on top of the 31 cars GLC sat off for them on Tuesday, will soon be going to South Lyon to pick up another car there, return to Howell and pick them all up and then head back to Lansing. The 90 car grain train went to Grand Ledge.

By any chance did you see what power he had? Was it just the single SD40-3?
