Am not sure what the issue was with Q32905 being at Plymouth with Q32805 being at Trowbridge other than the fact Q329 was setting off 20 cars there, but Q328 went all the way to Plymouth for them. Q32805 with CSX 5254+885 and 135 cars made it by Howell at 08:41, and Q32905 made it by Howell at 11:40 with CSX 336+3120 and 96 cars. That said, 329 is now stopped at Stockbridge Road Webberville due to an emergency with ambulance being called. While I know what the situation is, its not proper to say what at this time.

Edit: Trainmaster has assisted getting Q329 into the siding at Williamson. A D907 crew and power from GRP has arrived there to take the train west but as of 16:00 may still be there a long while yet. Has 64 more cars to pick up at Lansing once they get there. Guess this means Q326s power goes back to Chicago on Q327 tonight.

Once I heard Q32906 had CSX 885 on the lead this morning when still east of Brighton at 08:25, returning power from yesterdays Q328, I was out of here for the morning so did not get a car count today. Assume CSX 5254 was still with it. Q32806 went east by Howell at 06:25 with CSX 701+573 and 95 cars.

CSX #701 + #573 were being used as the pusher engines on the Grand Rapids sub & I had heard yesterday the plans were to place these 2 engines on today's Q328 & the #573 had inoperative PTC.
