K831-07 is currently going through Benton Harbor.
Sounds like Q326-09 is currently at Sawyer.

D700-09 westbound through St. Joseph around 10:50 pm.
Should have Q326-09 after they meet K831 at Sawyer...not sure if Q326 will wait for D700 at Sawyer or if they'll meet at Livingston.

Q329 west by Shaffer in GR 12:59. Appears an eastbound is lined up behind them on ATCS, Q328 perhaps?

Q328 approaching Lake Odessa at 14:45 with 135 cars. Perhaps they will bring all of the 60 plus GLC cars to Howell and set them off here as they have done it before. That would leave them with about the same amount of cars into Detroit as yesterday.

Q32809 arrived Howell at 16:50. Sat off 78 cars in the Howell pass for GLC. 61 of the 78 were loaded scrap tie cars. As the rain began to fall in Howell at 18:06, Q328 departed for Detroit with the remaining 57 cars in their train and the same four units reported earlier.

Subject to a last minute change of plans, CSX 144+7801 will be the power for Q327 tonight, and CSX 58 single unit on todays Q326 will be the power for tomorrows Q328.

As expected, Q32810 had CSX 58, single unit this morning, by Howell at 08:04 with 50 cars. Q329 will be late due to the late arrival of yesterdays Q328 into Detroit last night. Your turn, Tom.
