N800-29, the BNSF loaded coal train, had reported from the St Joseph Bridge with BNSF engine #6426 leading @ 20:26 Will wait at Riverside for Amtrak.
D801-01 is dead on the main track at Kirk Siding mp CG70.2 with a mechanical issue @ 20:29.
D801-01 had no luck getting themselves operative again & will wait to be rescued by the D802 (N800 pusher engines). They're going into Wells siding mp CG41.4 to allow Amtrak to pass.
At 21:45 Dispatch advised Amtrak P370 that D801-01 is dead on the main track & they will loop Amtrak around him thru Kirk siding. The plan now is, once Amtrak is out of the picture, an engine will go & rescue D801 & then N800-29 will run to Wells siding for is DP engines. Plans were changed, D802-01 will head to D801-01.

D802-01 is currently headed east at Kirk. Sounds like CSXT 701 leading. Sounds like they're pulling the cars from D801 to Holland, then will go back to Wells to help N800 over the hill at Saugatuck.

D802-01 with CSX #3389 (?) + #701 eastward at Bangor mp CG60.7 @ 00:25:35 pulling D801-01 with CSX engine #8134 & 6 tank cars. Seems the new plan is for this train to go into Wells siding, wait for N800-29, and then couple to N800-29 at Wells and everything (includingt D801) goes to Holland on the rear of N800-29.
Hearing East Tower talking to Q327 with CSX #792 at 00:30 as they prepare their train to depart, Q327 did not run during the hours on 12-1-2019. The #792 had ran solo on yesterday's Q329.
N800-29 at Bangor mp CG60.7 @ 00:40:47 with BNSF engines #6426 + 1 & 130 loaded coal cars.

You didn't think I thought all 320 cars in two days were Detroit cars did you Jon? My point was, I would think "more" than just 125 out of 320 would have gone there. Plus, I realize that more of those 320 just have not gone there yet. Was just trying to impress on a fact.
