Q329 had only 54 cars when they went by Howell at 07:58. D708 had 43 of them back to Lansing last night for 329 to get. Never heard or saw 328 today unless I slept through it which would be a rarity. Prior to midnight, V867, 91 car grain empty was spotted into Webberville. CSX 3185-779 for power.

Evidently whatever D708 went to South Lyon for did not get done. They returned by Howell at 19:45 with the same cars they went east with four hours prior. Not sure who the RN was talking to, but he said it sure doesn't take them two hours to cut from Lansing to Plymouth, mentioned D708 was running around their train in South Lyon and will have to "try again tomorrow" and them reported Q328 was osn duty in GRP at 21:00 and will have 13,000 feet of train. How many cars that will be.

2 hours from Lansing to Plymouth seems pretty accurate at track speed. It’s about 4 hours run time (give or take) from Plymouth to Grand Rapids with no delays and a good running train.

It didn't take but ten minutes to find the answer to who the RN was talking to in my message of a few minutes ago. Evidently, a Lansing crew taxied to Plymouth to bring a W08131 Herzog ballast train west. CSX 703+68 with 57 cars. Only cars 38-57 are still loaded. They are meeting a crew at Webberville and will spread ballast westward. When done, the crew will run around their train at Lansing and take it back to Plymouth.

Looks like they are running around the ballast cars at Trowbridge. Those two engines went light westbound across the CN at 23:27, and came back east across Harrison road using the siding at 23:37.

So far for Wednesday at Howell, W08131 ballast train went back east at 00:55 with CSX 68+703 and 57 cars. Q328 went east at 05:00 with CSX 474+4800 and 130 cars, arriving in Detroit at 06:49 and G86705 grain load from Webberville went east at 09:22 with CSX 779+3185 and 91 cars. Grain train to tie their train down at MP25 as they were not qualified beyond that. Probably no Q329 today unless they cab find a crew to taxi to Detroit to get it. If this morning's Q328 out of GRP left with 176 cars, they either sat off 45 cars in Lansing, or, left part of their train somewhere for having to much tonnage for the power.

Q327 with CSXT 5299 and 118 at Ivanrest getting their air test. I keep thinking of the ES40DC units as “newish” power but most are 14-15 years old now. It’s interesting to see the factory paint starting to fade.

Edit: they had about 125 cars.
