D70824 picked up CN 9603 at Peaker today and it should be on 329 into GRP tomorrow. It had been there since Aug. 15. For whatever reason, 708 could not set off the 18 cars they had for GLC, and evidently the powers to be did not want them left in the siding either so they took them back to Lansing with them. 708 picked up four scrap gons at Ogihara leaving only 20 empty cars left in the plant, which not to long ago topped the 50 car amount.

Late report: D708 EB where I got a nice shot of them passing Union Depot in Lansing at MA at 13:00 with 4289 leading and 23 cars mixed.

Earlier, JAIL had lite engines NB but brought two CSXT boxcars and a coil car south. Will likely return all to CSXT tomorrow morning.

E800 is currently going through St. Joseph. Sounds like BNSF 8429 leading.
P370-24 is currently going through Watervliet. Sounds like IDTX 4612 leading.

Q32925 & Q32825 met in Fowlerville at 08:45. Q329 had a land barge of 141 cars. No stone, but eight cars of rip rap. CSX 5419+39 on the head end. Many more to pick up at Lansing including the CN 4903, if they get them, but may leave the stone empties there. Q328 has CSX 5404+5109 with 109 cars.

D701/D702 appear to be toast. Last ran on the 22nd. Q386 started on the 23rd, running Willard OH to Detroit via Plymouth with a stop in Walbridge. Q38723 also started then, running Detroit to Willard. Q386 seems to depart Willard noon-2pm range and Q387 seems to depart Detroit midnight - 2am range.

Q329 went west at Seymour just before 13:00 with the aforementioned GEs plus IC 9603 third out and a monster of a train. Expect the IC Geep to be on Q327 this evening. Y106 is doing their runaround in Elmdale with CSX 4019, 1 gon, 4 tanks and 1 box.
