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.


1115 they were running around their train in grand ledge. On the radio it sounds like their starting their shove now.

@ 11:17am, Q326 went into emergency at the Paw Paw Ave crossing mp CG85.3 for a car that had slid thru the crossing and missed by "a foot" according to the engineer. The car was not hit and is currently sitting in-between #1 & #2 tracks there - conductor talked to the car driver & says she's ok, just shaken up.
N800 is behind Q326 and reported by DD mp CG91.9 @ 11:36am with 532axles & 6,941 feet long.
As of 12:12pm, Q326 is still sitting at the crossing awaiting a Track Inspector to arrive. Tow truck refuses to move the car until the Track Inspector shows up in about 15 minutes. The car is sitting in-between #1 & #2 Tracks about a foot away from the train. At 1:04pm, Q326 got the ok to move its train no faster than 10mph & N800 is still waiting at the St Joseph Bridge to follow Q326. At 1:18pm Q326 cleared Riverside mp CG80.1

Q327 with CSX 10 + CSX 3093? (was hard to read) & 43 cars arrived Bagor mp CG60.7 @ 20:33:20 and passed by very slowly as though he was going into Gross siding @ mp CG 61.3 to clear up for another train or there is still track circuit trouble from Gross to Kirk mp CG70.2 from earlier today.

I’m currently at Gross. My guess is they are waiting on Amtrak.
