X800-24 is currently going through Hartford eastbound. Sounds like BNSF 4776 leading.

Interesting. In BNSF parlance, this would be called a "baretable" train. A 5-pack of empty well cars was on Tuesday's evening Q326. A whole cut of well cars came from the east on Q329 a week or two ago as well for storage at Wyoming Yard.

Q329 west at Fox with a pair of GEs (one UP and one CSX, I think) elephant style and 50-60 cars. Sounds like UP 7390 leading on the scanner.

Q329 and D700 arriving in Wyoming. Tower wants Q329 to see if their second engine will start, as they'll need it for the 9,000+ ton Q327 this evening. If it won't, they have an extra engine (likely the BNSF engine from X800) that they will have to grab from the Mouse. D700 is leaving 4057 in the Mouse and taking 6545 down 2 track to the yard office.

Sorry about that, been to busy out working in the yard to come in and post. By Howell at 08:20 with UP 7390 and CSX 5385 and only 29 cars. Didn't think there were to many to pick up as D708 had less than 12 cars back to Lansing yesterday. Q32825 went east at 06:42 with CSX 5 and 466 and 102 cars.

Dispatch is going to add the BNSF #4776 as a 3rd engine from last night's X800-24 train for tonight's Q327-25. Q329's 2nd engine (CSX # 5385) that was questionable did fire up, but, dispatch wants the BNSF #4776 added for "insurance" & it needs to go back to Chicago anyways. So, Q327-25 should have the UP #7390, CSX #5385, & the BNSF #4776 for their 9,000+ ton train.
