Q32929 by Howell at 08:25 with six locomotives on the head end. Four BNSF leading, 2 CSX units trailing. Lead four units were BNSF 9153 for sure, & if I read my writing right, 9748+9207+9140 trailing. Because of the speed they were going, looked to long at the 4th BNSF unit and missed the 1st CSX unit. Then, while I did see the 2nd CSX unit, I did not write it down when I started to count cars, and later forgot what it was. 329 had 77 cars with at least 50 or more to pick up at Lansing on the rear end from Tuesday's D708. 344 axels on the DD at 64.0, 36 of those were locomotives. If anyone sees this train in GRP, please verify the numbers. Meanwhile, Q32829 went east at 05:10 with CSX 3269+3358 and 69 cars

You got all the BNSF correct, and the CSX pair are 3405 & 5281. The Lansing pickup included 8 of the commuter cars from GLC which are bringing up the rear.

Is it possible we will see those Commuter Cars on tonight's Q327?
Sounded like Q329 being reported by the DD at mp CH104.3 @ 11:59am with 596 axles. Math works out for 6 engines & 140 cars.
Q329 reported by the DD at mp CH126.3 @ 11:36am with same axle count.

THANK YOU SO MUCH DAN !!!! Guessing, from my short memory it would have been 5261 for the trailing unit, but had already found out I guessed wrong. Glad I got the BNSF numbers right because 3 of the 4 were first time sightings for me and the 4sth had not seen since 2013. And, this is what I get for not watching all of D708 last night. After I waved to the head end and making sure there were no CN units on it from Peaker, I turned around and walked back into the house. I hope they are on 327 tonight, or tomorrow night Tom.
