Q32914 went west by Howell at 09:27 with BNSF 6644 + CSX 3115 with 99 cars. Sounded as if they were supposed to bring either a lease unit or a unit sold to some Michigan line along with them but were told to leave it at the last minute, whoever it is going to or what it was. Earlier, Q32814 went east at 06:24 with CSX 774+9041 and 108 cars.

The “lease units” are a pair of ex NS B32-8s that Stone Co has apparently leased to replace the GLLX engines at their Lansing and Flint yards.

Sure looked strange seeing the DPU on Q326. While in Marion Ohio for three days, all kinds of trains running with DPU, about half and half between mid train and on the rear. Q635 Toledo to Columbus had a DPU with after the first 116 cars with 44 more behind. Another Q635 had one on the rear with only 63 cars. Saw one on NS that had a DPU only 21 cars back with 60 more after. Sure cant turn your back on the train for long anymore.

No crews available for pushers until later tonight. MTs are being put together at West Olive and will probably push that loaded train up later tonight.

No crews available for pushers until later tonite? Maybe just maybe someone should let them tie up when their assigned task is finished so they can get rested instead of only tie up after 8 hours...just a thought to the terminally STUPID.
Enjoy Every Sandwich.
