BNSF empty coal arrived Pullman mp CG48 @ 09:14 and arrived Bangor mp CG60.7 @ 09:33:10. Couldn't read the engine numbers & unknown, due to poor radio reception, if this is E800 or E801. I was told a little later that train was E801.

There were no trains by Howell on Christmas day during the 24 hour period. This morning, Q32826 went east at 05:28. CSX 588+448, but with only four cars which I was surprised to see only because in the two days prior to Christmas, Q326 had 257 cars total, and there were lots of Detroit cars in both. Q32926 went west at 08:28 with CSX 10 and 42 cars.

P370 just left St. Joe at 21:20. Sounds like they accrued a small delay trying to unlock the handicapped lift. Will be interesting to see what equipment they have when they pass Bangor cam. Guessing not Superliners.

Edit: Bangor cam shows Superliners. I wonder why they had to get into the lift shed? Usually don’t need a lift for Superliners.
