D708 today went non stop from Lansing to South Lyon today, a rarity there. The CN unit did go to Peaker as I suspected it would after it came into GRP on Q326 on Tuesday and nobody said a word about it after it arrived. All of the 24 cars were for GLC and 708 tucked them into the Howell pass on top of the cars they sat off there yesterday and 328 sat off on Tuesday; There is now 72 cars for GLC waiting to get picked up. 708 went back to Lansing from Howell at 16:30 with one tank car that was picked up at South and the usual power.

Any of these hoppers you are seeing something other than sand tlout? Word is there's some hoppers that made it out to Fremont to the co-op out there, so non-sand.

Q32616 at Michigan City per the Bangor chat room. Y106 around Thornapple River eastbound 10:35am.

11:40am update - y106 at Alto working, Q329 in the blocks between Lake Odessa and Lansing.

Any initials with the name? Q32810 went east by Howell at 05:50 this morning with the power from yesterdays Q326 (493+818) and 129 cars. More stone empties on the rear. Q32917 went west, the earliest ever, at 07:04 with the returning power from yesterdays Q328 (5341-5421) and 84 cars. GLC Z62417 was finally over on CSX at 11:00 this morning picking up the now nearly 80 cars 708 and Q328 left for them all week and when they pushed them east of Ann Pere, they pulled 65 more into the siding right behind them for D708 or somebody to pick up next week. During the eastbound push-pull they were moving 137 cars. GLC 329+382+397+398 in the middle if you were at Lucy Road.
