Q327-31 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like CSXT 280 leading.

Hearing horns up at Woodbury from what I assume is Q329 02. They are lined up Lake O - Seymour on the ATCS monitor.

For the second day in a row, Q328 & Q329 met in Howell this morning at close to the same times as yesterday. The only difference today, if the siding at Fowlerville was available, the meet would have been better there than here as Q329 waited 40 minutes for 328 to get here. Q32802 went east at 07:55 with CSXT 3256+4582 and 84 cars, Q32902 went west at 08:05 with CSX 7698 single unit and 39 cars.

Since June, yes. Formerly they were Q326/327 between GR and Detroit.

Q329 & Q328 met at Fowlerville this morning around 08:45. Q32903, CSX 3034 was ALL STONE LOADS by Howell 46 cars. Been a long time since the all stone load trains ran. Q32803 had 60 cars, CSX 7698 single unit. Todays Q32603 should have CSXT 5366 single unit, so two of my sons say, recently seeing it pass Dolton Jct.

From what I am reading here are they mainly a morning run or do they run like the old Q326/7 use to in the am and pm?

Evidently my boys got it right as 5366 was reported going back to Chicago on Q327 tonight. V75801 CSX 700+3420 grain empty went to Grand Ledge this afternoon.

They run very reliably in the morning.

I would guess that Q328 gets called around 2-3 am as it usually passes by me near Lake Odessa between 4 and 6 am most days.

Q329 is usually by me westbound sometime between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. Q329 usually swaps a block of cars in Lansing so its time by me varies a little. I assume that Q328 does as well but I don't pay as much attention to that as they are past me by then so I just don't keep tabs on them as much.
