10,536 feet length of train as which equated to 576 total axles. D708 spotted a bunch on main one for them to pick up too, but don't know they are going to accomplish that with the train size. Q32819 went east by Howell at 06:36 with CSX 3171 single unit and 53 cars.

THATS when one makes an executive decision and call an extra to fetch the Ensle cars. What? Nevermind.

CantBeShook-You might know this. Just saw a very long intermodal from the north, turning west on the Fostoria east cam. Do You know what train it would be? It was mostly foreign containers, yet quite of few doublestack csx/umax too. Thought is would be Q151, but I thought they stopped carrying domestics? Any thoughts? I always appreciate your knowledge, thanks.

Just before 19:30, caught the tail end of D736 just after it turned east at Plymouth. Didn't look like a long train, maybe 25-30 cars. Missed the engines but from scanner, UP 8974 was leading.

Amtrak east by Wells as of 10:30pm. Q327 not called out of Grand Rapids still, so maybe a morning run. West Michigan RR took a few empties from the CSX interchange and spotted a couple tonight, so d700 might have work in Hartford on Thursday possibly.

It was G70620, by Howell at 04:10. CSX 3145+772+966 with 89 cars. Q32820 went east at 06:02. UP 5986 with JB and 56 cars. Q32920 went west at 08:36 with two U.P. units 6778+8794 with another 116 cars out of Detroit, even with no bare tables today. Bad news, D708 put another 32 cars onto the 34 cars they left on main two the day before for 329 to pick up (66 total now) and it does not look like they will be allowed to pick them up again today either. They already have 6500 feet and would be way over 10,000 if they do. Time will tell.

You might have more luck posting this as it's own thread and hope to get a response from a few of our Ohio memebers. A couple of whom even work the railroad lines down there. Those guys might not see this on the locations update since its mostly Michigan stuff. I kinda bet Can't be Shook doesn't know. Not in his character to answer stuff like that historically.
