Q32912 by Howell at 10:04 and currently nearing Williamston at 10:27. PRLX 238 in BNSF H2 paint, and PRLX 231 in Warbonnet paint. Had 68 cars by me, which will change before it gets to GRP. 30 more cars of stone loads too, which is getting mighty late in the season to be still running. The PRLX power will probably run to Chicago on Q327 tonight. Earlier, Q32812 went east at 07:02 with CSX 764, single unit, but with only 12 cars. Seeing this, I suspected CSX 40 that was with it on Q326 yesterday was cut off, not because of the short train, but because they need another unit for todays Webberville load grain pick up. GP30M4216 has just confirmed this.

Forgot to mention yesterday, on the rear end of Q32811 were the same PMRX dirty silver with green end coal cars that went west on the lead of Q329 several days prior.

Both rail grinders, RG9 and RG5, pulled into the Howell pass at 07:30 to wait for Q328 & Q329 to pass. After they did, they worked east for awhile and then tied up in the Howell pass for the day.. Q32813 went east with the two UP Units from yesterdays Q326. 328 had 43 cars. 329 had only 19 cars with CSX 34, single unit.
