Did Linus get a new engine or is that the Alco from the HighLine in Wyoming going to Hartford?
And I noticed more then a few ties marked along the right of way at Snow Ave the other day. Probably fixing it up for Lake States eh? 8-) Or CPRail.

Y121 has Q326 in Holland @ 17:56. Q326 had stalled out on the Saugatuck Hill & had to break his train to move it over the hill. The crew ran out of time & a cab picked them up at Saugatuck & Y121 crew took over.
Q327 reported by the DD at mp CG19.1 @ 18:58 with CSX #3419 + #222 + CN #2015 & 111 cars (?). Q327 is diverging into Waverly/Holland to drop off some cars.
Q326 update: dispatch is not sure how they are going to handle Q326 sitting in Holland & had said they may have D700 move it to Grand Rapids later on.
N800-30 the loaded coal train with BNSF engine #6033 leading reported from mp 90 @ 20:02

If the 2015 is the same 2015 that was on Q329 at Howell this morning, this is a CSX unit. However, D708 picked up CN 4929 at Peaker yesterday and should have come into GRP this morning on 329. Was expecting GLLX/ GTW 4428 to be on D708 today for GLC but it wasn't. Its possible 2015 could be set off in Holland tonight as well.
