At 11:08am, the DD at mp CG91.9 reported Q326 with 589 axles (an error) & 7,938 feet long. Been noticing DD91.9 has been adding 1 axle lately to some trains (possible noisy transducer sensitive to any wheel impact vibrations). Noticed later on the DD at mp CG19.1 had done the same thing with a different train.

LOOKS LIKE THEY WENT INTO EMERGENCY BRAKE APPLICATION COMING ACROSS THE GRADE CROSSING. IF THEY HAD HIT SOMEONE OR SOMETHING THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE MUCH LONGER THAN 17 MINUTES.

Once again, Q328 & Q329 was by Howell this morning at approximately the same times again with another meet in Brighton. Q32828 went east at 06:54 with CSX 3164+10 and 69 cars. Q32928 went west at 07:30 with UP 8518 and NS 9633, both units facing west, with 38 cars,

GLC was over on CSX at Howell early last evening setting off 52 cars in the Howell passing siding and picking up 61. First time I have heard the RN dispatcher ask GCL the same multi questions they ask other trains now regarding PTC, if they have enough power to move the train, if they are a Key train, etc. GLC didn't know what to make of all the questions.

​538 axles, 7038 feet at 91.9 DD @ 19:38. Guessing they have 3 engines by that axle count.

Q328 & Q329 met in South Lyon this morning at 07:00. Q32829 by Howell at 06:25 with CSX 5221 & CP 8706 and 104 cars. Q32929 went west at 07:30 with CSX 203 single unit and 43 cars. Overnight, a G-013 crew took a westbound empty 89 car grain train to Webberville and had it spotted by 01:00. CSX 280 on the lead. Did not see what was behind it, but it will be back east in a day or so as the power stayed at Webberville.

Another grain empty just went west by Howell at 09:30, this one for Grand Ledge I assume. V768, with CSX 585+7810 and 90 cars.
