Morning Activity At Howell: Q32811 went east at 05:05 with CSX 5108 and 54 cars. Another grain empty went west at 06:20 (3rd one in a week) this one to Grand Ledge running with a G013 crew which means it had another "V" designation south of Plymouth. CSX 76+5389 on this one with 90 cars. Except for two lease cars, they were all CSX cars like the other two. Q32911 went west at 08:08 with CSX 587-5101 with 53 cars, If not for the 20 or so loads of stone today, 329 would have had only 32 cars for the 3rd day in row.

Meanwhile, yesterdays D70810 took one of their two units (4025) to Brighton at left it there on top of 8 or so cars in the pass. Assuming its going to be used on some kind of work train sometime today as the major resurfacing project between Plymouth and Lansing continues, now working between Williamston and Trowbridge.

Interesting that those pushers did shove q326 up the hill after pushing the coal load. 326 had almost 100 cars, but appears to have made it up just fine as they are going through Zeeland currently.
D700 west by Bangor at 12:09pm with CSXT 4032 long hood forward, 4 steel coil cars, 1 loaded centerbeam for Grandville, 1 tank car, 1 long covered hopper, and 6 more tank cars. DTLX 2817 and TCBX 251332 last car.

1045hrs: Z627/Michigan Shore currently working Holland Waverly Yard. Surprised to see them on a Saturday!

Edit 1055: they have departed the east end of the yard and are about to back around the eye to head north. Both units facing forward with 13 cars.
