Y106 east at Breton in GR 10:55. FWIW, Y106 will be going to third shift next week for a week due to some MOW curfews between Grand Rapids and Lake Odessa, sounds like tie replacement.

Got CSXT going by Greenfield Road in Detroit at 1608. Power is: CSXT 5286, 322, 8383. The 8383 is a real smoker. Real bug cut of stone on head end. Only 12 hours late. There was a derailment at Rouge Telegraph this morning at 0300.
CSXT 509 went down the Lincoln Branch after waiting for four hours for the NS to let him go.

NB mixed freight just turned east at Plymouth. CSX 3066 + 5268 + CN 8866 + 172 cars. First 50 appeared to be limestone finely ground. Something white and piled high, in any case. Also several cuts, maybe 2 dozen in all, of brand spanking new high-sided AIM gons, reporting marks AIMX.

P371 left GR in time thing morning but took at 20 minute delay somewhere before Holland. D700, who was waiting in Holland for them, is rolling thru Zeeland now at 07:30.

Yesterday, a CN SD unit was sitting at the west end of Ensel yard in Lansing, awaiting pickup by the delayed Q329 I expect. Two coils were dropped off by JAIL for CSXT interchange. Hart Truss has one empty centerbeam on their spur.

Just after 12pm, the dispatcher was talking to N800-31 with BNSF engine #9108 in Grand Junction regarding Q326 being stalled out on Saugatuck Hill. Heard D801 is on its way to rescue Q326.
