I guess a setout might explain the slow transit time, but would they have a Q train set out enroute?

Took a listen to the scanner recordings. Sounds like they set out some high/wide machinery loads at Michigan City.

I am going to try to get a shot of Q32919 on Wednesday in Grand Ledge. How long does Q32919 work Lansing?

Not sure to be honest. I would guess 60-90 minutes. But that's just my guess and it probably depends. Some days they even skip Lansing work randomly. I would suggest listening to the lansing area railfeed scanner or using your own scanner on chanel 8 (road) and 14(dispatch). They need to get a track warrant (Form EC-1 track authority) to proceed west out of lansing as it is ABS but not CTC territory from lansing to Lake O.

Tlout, sounds like some empties running as D80120 will bring empties south through Holland soon, bring the train down Saugatuck hill, then detach from train to push Q326 up the hill. They'll reattach afterwards and have E80018's crew get taxied on to take it west this afternoon.
