N800 arrived Bangor mp CG60.7 @ 19:50:45 not sure where pushers will be added.
Q327 reported from mp CG9 @ 19:52
Q327 reported by the DD at mp CG19.1 @ 20:10 with CSX #5461 + 1 & 58 cars.
N800 arrived Pullman mp CG48 @ 20:14:17 without pushers added. Probably will get those at Wells mp CG41.4
​Q327 going into Saugatuck siding mp CG32 @ 20:37 and most likely will wait there until N800 departs Wells siding with its added pusher engines.
N800 is rolling again & reported clear west end Saugatuck mp CG32 @ 20:59
Q327 departing Saugatuck siding @ 21:10 heading south (west). Dispatch @ 21:24 now has Q327 going into Grand Junction siding mp CG53.9 to clear for Amtrak.
Q327 arrived Pullman mp CG48 @ 21:38:48 & D801 pusher engines are to pull into Grand Junction, too.
D801, two CSX pusher engines arrived Pullman mp CG48 @ 21:48:48
Q327 arrived Bangor mp CG60.7 @ 22:36:20 the 2nd black engine I've never seen before & couldn't read its name or #. Almost looked like "Wisconsin" something.
Looked like the mystery engine had 3 white letters on the side of its body in cursive writing.

Illinois Central 1038. The IC's SD70s were the last new power order by the IC before the CN merger. CN has been cycling their SD70s through Peaker Services in Brighton a few at a time for about the last year or so, which is where 1038 came from.

Thank you for identify the IC engine :) it had us baffled since we couldn't read the engine as it passed by the Bangor cam.

N800 is currently going through Riverside. Sounds like BNSF 9065 leading.
Sounds like they are meeting power in Grand Jct. for assistance up Saugatuck Hill.

I know.
And as for the 5 axles, just heard a track inspector clear up between Sawyer and Riverside. The vehicle used must have shunted the rails.

The HBD's magnetic transducers detect the flanges entering their magnetic field, typically, hi-rail vehicles don't shunt, and the HBD doesn't require anything to be shunting to detect flanges.
