Q329 was reported by the DD at mp CH104.3 @ 11:29am. The radio call was stepped on & couldn't clearly get the DD's axle count. Kind of sounded like 372 axles which would work out for 2 engines with 90 cars.
Q329 was reported by the DD at mp CH126.3 @ 12:09pm with 372 axles. Q329-23 has CSX engines #3370 + #3080. He had picked up 8 cars in Lansing.

Q327-23 was reported by the DD at mp CG19.1 @ 18:13 with CSX engines #3370 + #3080 & 89 cars, he's going into Holland. Many thanks to Steamlogger who was on site & counted the cars & advising there were two five pack well cars in the consist that would make the DD math for cars incorrect. :)

E800-23 with BNSF engine #6257 leading will be following right behind Q327.
Q327-23 Bangor mp CG60.35 approach @ 20:52:50 with CSX engines #3370 + #3080 & 85 cars. Going into Kirk Siding mp CG70.2 to clear up for Amtrak.
