Regarding this mornings D908, D708 derailed in B track at Ashei-Kasei yesterday which killed their day. A recrew for D708, plus D707s crew, plus, the track department all met in Fowlerville after midnight. D707 took 708s lead unit, 4032 back to Lansing so they could switch Grand Ledge, D908 assisted the track depart with trailing unit 4229, finished switching Ashei-Kasei, came east to switch Thai-Summit, and then returned back to Lansing where the fuel truck is waiting to refuel both units.


329 on the move now as 708 1243

Q32806 with CSXT 913 and 716 with 103 cars eastbound at Fox at 11:11. RN asked if they’d fit at Elmdale. Negative, crew says. Grand Ledge? Nope. Plan now is to have Q329 shove back down number 2 main at Lansing and wait for 328. Didn’t seem like Q328 was too big for the siding at Fox (or Lake Odessa for that matter) but hey I’m not in charge!

D700 arriving back at Wyoming, 10 track to the east end.

Some of the MQT boxcars have been added to the general G&W boxcar pool. Most likely headed for the Huron & Eastern via GLC at Ann Pere.

Also could have been loads for PCA Owasso. That happened on a semi regular basis.

Q32806, CSX 913+716 by Howell at 15:45. 103 cars leaving GRP, 81 by Howell

Regarding the MQT box cars possibly going to PCA in Owosso, correct, they, and others have gone there within the last year or longer. Not that the cars on todays D708 couldn't be going elsewhere.
