Arrived at North Lansing at 09:43. Do you think they will pick up one of D708's engines depending on power availability? That would make it a trio of EMDs :shock:

Q326 just went past Glenlord Rd./Stevensville. Passenger car in the consist near the rear of the train. Only got a quick glimpse as the view from my office window is obstructed and I can only see about two carlengths of the train between two buildings.

What a three hour waste a time for the crew on Q329, even though the extra unit if needed on line didn't help somewhere for both 329 & 327 later.

A GRP G01021 crew taxied to Plymouth to pick up these two units and took them back west engines light to Webberville to put the Webberville grain load together. By Howell at 22:30 Thursday evening. They returned back east to Plymouth at 04:03 Friday morning with the 87 loads, along with the units that went west with the V81017 empty last Sunday. (78+5407) and tied the train down at MP25. Not sure what was wrong with the two units that came in on the empty to require additional power.
