Listening to the archive, that was Q32921 running very late last night. Appears they had problems in Lansing. CSXT 3316 leading instead of Bob's 508 in the lead at that point. Interesting that 3316 was on D700 earlier in the day, so they must have ran lite to Lansing to go get more cars out of Ensel.. Sounds like they grabbed a dead engine, and had to split their long train apart in wyoming yard. GDLK Z739 ran around 11pm as well.
4:30pm - q32921 went east out of GR lite power with CSXT 3278 leading, went to trowbridge to grab "that train." Said they need to get onto the train, log out of PTC.

Q32922 currently going through Fowlerville at 10:00. CSX 5289+162 with 75 cars. Lots of CN & BNSF traffic. Earlier, Q32822 went east at 07:25 with CSX 488+508 and 43 cars. 16 auto rack cars.

While I did not report it yesterday, somewhere between Howell and Trowbridge, Q32921 went dead in the water when their single unit power went belly up and quit out in the stick's somewhere. Noticed when they went by me white smoke or steam was spewing out of the roof to the rear of the long hood. Crew said they ran out of water. Don't know for fact for sure, but think D708 came out later and towed the train into Trowbridge pass, or even Ensel. Would have made mention of this but found no further report on the train until what I just saw above.

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.
Need a locomotive number or car number on that train to see which train it was.
