Q326 reported from Benton Harbor mp CG87.5 @13:04 (The DD at CG91.9 report at 12:55pm had cut out & missed the axle count).
Q326 @ 13:18 talked to dispatch about an issue with their 2nd engine & they will drop off 20 cars into Wells siding mp CG41.4 to make their train lighter so that they can make it over the hill near mp CG32. Sounds like CSX #979 is in the lead. Those 20 cars will be left inside of Wells, Q326 isn't to go back & get them.
Q326 arrived Bangor mp CG60.7 @ 13:59:02 EDT with CSX engines #979 + #5111 & 84 cars.
Q326 arrived Pullman mp CG48 @ 14:44:30 EDT, later than usual & still had its 84 cars & headed to Wells siding next to drop off 20 cars.

P370-10 is currently going through Coloma. Sounds like IDTX 4603 leading.
Sounds like N801-10 will be following them eastbound.

Sounds like N801 is going to get the power from N800 (BNSF 8765 + 6006) that is sitting inside Grand Junction siding mp CG53.9 as pushers.
N801 reported from mp CG77 at 21:42
N801 arrived Bangor mp CG60.7 @ 22:11:02 can't read the BNSF engines #.
Unknown what is going on with Q327, he has not been heard from at all as of 22:35

If you are talking about Q326 my guess is the reefers eventually end up at Twin City Foods in Lake Odessa.

If he’s talking about 326, then yes, the reefers go to Twin City Foods in Lake Odessa or Michigan Natural Storage in Grand Rapids.

Q326 by Kirk a few minutes ago with CSXT 778, 794 and 66 cars, per Mr. Hall on location. Might be picking up the cars Saturday's (?) Q326 left at Wells.

Meanwhile, Q329 west at Breton at 12:11.

Q326 arrived Bangor mp CG60.7 @ 12:18:04
Q326 arrived Pullman mp CG48 @ 12:38pm
Q326 reported from mp CG32 @ 13:00 & may not have picked those 20 cars from Wells based on the time.
Q326 was reported by the DD at mp CG19.1 having 66 cars as it had for DD mp CG91.9, so, Q326 did not pick up 20 cars from Wells siding after-all. Maybe, tomorrow's D700 will handle those cars in Wells siding.
