The hill between New Richmond and (East) Saugatuck, heading east on CSX. As they climb out of the Kalamazoo River Valley, heavy trains either have to double or be shoved up that hill.

Speaking of Q326-14, it is currently going through Stevensville. (CG 94.5)

Q326 arrived Bangor mp CG60.7 @ 20:53:29 with CSX #5421 + #5340 & 101 cars and to get pushers at Grand Junction mp CG55.6
Q327 holding north of Pullman mp CG48 awaiting Q326.
Q327 is probably inside of Wells siding mp 43.3 & Q326 will go inside of Grand Junction siding mp 55.6 and both trains will wait until Amtrak passes them by.

I had heard a while back the SC-44 Charger had issues communicating with a MU if it's not another SC-44 & its digital communication link had been designed for the SC-44's computer to "talk" to the computer of another SC-44 unit(s).

Track inspector headed east to Lake Odessa. Looks like they took care of a track light west of the EAS WE Elmdale. Q329 has a light off the EC-1 Territory, so my guess is they have left Lansing.
