Car count on Q329 would be correct with the six car pick up at Lansing and having 98 cars by Howell, 2nd unit was CSX 112 as reported earlier. I see 3080+862 made a fast trip back to GRP this morning on Q326 so another chance to see it Howell, but am betting it will return back to Chicago again depending on when Q328 leaves town today. As of the noon hour, zero trains by so far today.

Only 39 cars on Q328. Q329 not called until 10:30, so early to mid PM for Howell. If 328 gets to Detroit fast enough, the power on it can come right to GPR on 329 like the last three days. There will be no Q328 or Q329 on Christmas Day. After Q328 went by on Sunday, a 90 car Webberville grain empty went west with CSX 5322+244+312 on the head end, running as G01021. Had it spotted in the plant by 22:30. Second grain empty in a row that went to Webberville as G010, a generic number for accounting purposes so they don't have another crew for the V Train that it arrived at Plymouth with. Even the last load went east as a G010. Perhaps CSX does not want anymore V or G train road numbers on the Plymouth sub anymore. Yea, I know, just a coincidence.

Q327-22 @ 06:40:23 engines were most likely CSX #3080 + #862 trailing. These 2 engines were on yesterday's Q326.
N800 @ 09:03:51 leading engine was the BNSF #5778

Sorry to be ‘that guy’...but about how long would it usually take for a train to get from Detroit to around Plymouth? Looking to shoot some searchlights today. Thanks!

Obvious I heard that wrong. Evidently it wasn't a 10:30 call out of Detroit, but what the expected arrival time would be at Williamston per a conversation with MofW. Q32923 by Howell at 10:22 with CSX 592+258 and 97 cars.
