Q32912 by Howell at 10:53. CSX 3156+978+3034+3370 with 81 cars. 26 cars on main two at Lansing to pick up, if they do.

Edit: Q329 will be setting out one or two of their rear units at ADM in Webberville.

Edit #2, and the joke of the day (no kidding) Assuming CSX 794 that Q328 sat off at ADM Webberville this morning was still facing west, like it was on yesterdays Q326, the rear two units Q329 are setting off are also both facing west. The only eastward facing unit is the second unit, 978, which the traction motors are cut off from it. This in turn would leave three rear facing units for the load out of Webberville. Regardless, if takes 329 as long to shuffle power at Webberville as it did 328 this morning, they wont get to Lansing until after 13:00 at best. Perhaps 5241 will still have to come out of GRP engine light for this train.

Bob, the unit which was at Webberville is confirmed to be facing west. Maybe they’ll just run LHF and rotate the power at Plymouth.

As of 12:04, still no sign of Q329 at Williamston

Q329 clear both ends of Williamston at 12:53. Yes, that is now the plan to run the three units to Plymouth long end forward when the grain load gets on the move.
