Between 20:00 and 21:00, MTs and Q327 went thru downtown St. Joe. P370 passed later. Another WB freight was going thru downtown at around 03:30, guessing MTs.

There were 5 engines on what I figured was 326 (EB) around 4:30pm; it was blocking 64th, north of East Saugatuck, so I had to find an alternate route to the New Richmond cemetery. It was gone by the time I returned.

Been rail fanning in Chesterton/Porter, IN. Lots of trains, as always. I wonder what time they released Q327: before or after NB Amtrak. Now 8:45 EDT. So I wonder if went through here already? Or not...
