Q32916 by Howell at 08:45 with three units today and 123 cars. CSX 79+5476+710 on the head end. As reported yesterday as coming, nearly 60 loads of stone up front. A long string of tanks on the rear. Todays Q326 was by Bangor at 08:45, 5th day in a row within 14 minutes of each other CSX 494+5396 on this one with 138 cars. What job in GRP switches out the cars on 328-329 once they get to GRP?

Y193 will break down 326 and 329 if they're in early enough, otherwise Y290 will do it. Y193 also generally builds Q327. Y290 will generally build Q328 and D700. Both will build up Z151 and Z739 as the cars come in throughout the day. Y106 will also help out if needed. Y297 and Y397 can also build/switch out any of the aforementioned trains but they are usually kept busy with industry work.

MERCY Took me two hours to realize I forgot to post the Q32816 info from this morning. By Howell at 05:34 with CSX 3135+803 and 83 cars. Thanks for the info SD80MAC on the GRP yard jobs that switch out Q326 and 329 and build 327 & 328.

City Market is switched either by Y193 on first shift or Y297 on second shift. Acme lead is serviced by Y397 on third shift. This should still be pretty accurate: http://railroadfan.com/wiki/index.php/Michigan_Customers#Grand_Rapids_Terminal_Subdivision

Q327-16 is currently going through St. Joseph. CSXT 79 leading.
P370-16 is currently going through Riverside. Sounds like IDTX 4631 leading.
