Any idea of why Q329 is so late? No crew?

Q327 Bangor mp CG60.5 approach at 20:14:09 with CSX engine #5364 & 22 cars. He had worked inside Holland but the scanner was off line - don't know how many cars Q327 had when he left Grand Rapids.
E800-08 had gone into Wells siding mp CG41.4 around 18:00 & probably will remain there until Amtrak (due at Bangor @ 22:09 so far) passes by.

Per Bangor chat, E80008 got to Wells about 6pm, then it got annulled at that point. Dunno what's up with that.

Same two Gevos, now facing east, just went by Breton eastbound. Wonder if this is light power from a grain train that came to turn on the Sunnyside wye?

10:37 edit: Y106 east with a standard cab Dash 2 Geep LHF and 12 cars.

11:26 edit: Q329 west at Breton behind a single GE.

The two units are from a Grand Ledge grain load who had to come to GRP to reverse their power. Q329 had only 34 cars by Howell at 07:40. The single unit was 892, yesterdays DPU unit on Q328. Speaking of, some strange things going on with Q328 since Sunday.

15:30 another late Q328 by MA in Lansing with CSXT 88 and a newer GEVO leading. No DPU today.

Edit 16:25- D708 now heading east with 4289 and a new (Old) CW40-8 with a good size train. Looks like many cars of extra tall utility poles among the consist.

Grain Load from Grand Ledge, V91910 (perhaps yesterdays date) by Howell at 15:33. CSX 5429+3222. Should have had 87 cars, which is what the empties had on Saturday, but counted 94. However, was not doing to well on the car count as the train woke me up from my afternoon siesta on the back porch in full view of the tracks, while honking for Highlander Way crossing, a half mile to my west. Thanks for the heads up on Q328 coming in the last two posts. D708 arrived in Fowlerville at 17:00

P370-10 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like IDTX 4618 leading.
Sounds like they're meeting a westbound (Q327?) at Riverside.
