Q326-23 is currently going through St. Joseph. Sounds like CSXT 5261 leasing.

Q32923 has CSX 5303+5263 for power. By Howell at 08:48 with 67 cars. Has a large Lansing pickup so they should be there awhile. Q32823 went east at 06:25 with CSX 3168+3280 & 91 cars.

Q326 @ 10:09am is stopped just beyond a hill near Benton Harbor(?) with mechanical issues. He was only able to get his train to 4mph in 8th notch. The Mechanical Dept is trouble-shooting with Q326 on the radio.

One of the 4000 HP units was only pulling about 110 hp.
Sounds like they're on the move again, and will be picking up DP power in Grand Junction so they can make it up Saugatuck Hill.

K83123 empty potash train from Webberville, CP 8028 and CP 8575 departed Fowlerville at 11:00 after running around its train there, with 73 cars. Crew arrived at Webberville at 05:00. Evidently, 11 of the 83 cars on the loads were either not for Webberville, or the empties were going east and not west. They switched out the 11 cars first, and then had Q32824 stop and pick them up before getting the rest of the train put together to return back to GRP with it. Q32824, CSX 5261+163 was by Howell at 07:02 with 59 cars and the 11 potash cars on the head end.

Q32924 went west by Howell at 08:47 with CSX 146+4037 and 51 cars but had to wait at Fowlerville until K831 arrived.

​D700 Bangor westward approach @ 12:40pm with CSX engine #6530 & 14 cars (10 CH, 1 tank, 1 Hi-Top, & 2 coil cars).
Q326 reported by the DD at mp 44.2 @ 12:46pm, sounds like he'll be running without DP added. He made the Saugatuck Hill ok without the need of DP units.
