Saw the cars in the yard today, 2 LONG cuts of cars going the entire length from EE to WE Wyoming Yard. Insanely huge. Stone cars either at the head end or middle, depending on what cut they double first.

P370-30 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like the ever-popular IDTX 4619 leading again.

By Howell at 05:30. CSX 3036+367+8369 with 170 cars. 12,100 feet. Only 24 stone empties near the rear end but not consecutive. Just prior to that two light engines went west with CSX 563+3367 for power with the train name V907. Not sure what that was all about. Q32931 went west at 09:00 with single unit CSX 557 and moving right along at track speed with its 90 cars.

Only after finding 66 cars sitting in the Howell passing this afternoon, all for GLC, did the light bulb go off regarding two things. What I thought was V907 was actually D907 and the power was the west olive pusher units. Perhaps the original plan from the powers to be was to put these cars on Q328 for an Ann Pere set off, which would give them 236 cars leaving GRP (which wouldn't surprise me) but thought better of it later. Seeing a separate train and power was used anyway, perhaps they had plans to push this 236 car train all the way to Howell. All is well than ends well.
