The 8383 ptc died on the way to grand rapids.

Rob

They're running with the #117 leading & seem to have the issue now resolved. Still doing prep work inside Grand Rapids then @ 22:07 they're reporting additional problems with their compressor. Now they're going to be switching the engine out with another in the yard. Today's Q329 had arrived Grand Rapids with BNSF engine #6245 + BNSF #8414 + CSX #5491. Maybe, they'll grab one of those engines to change out the CSX #117 with. They opted to just add CSX #5491.

N801-20 @ 22:41 reported by the DD at mp CG44.2 with BNSF engines #5939 + #9178 & 130 loaded coal cars & the 2 CSX engines for DP that was added at Grand Jct.
It appears Q327-20 replaced the CSX #117 that was to be the leading engine with the CSX #5491 that had arrived on today's Q329. The 2nd engine appears to still be the CSX #8383. At 23:30 Q327 was still inside Grand Rapids.

Q329221 by Howell at 08:30 with CSX 356 single unit and 59 cars. 40 more to pick up at Lansing. Still sitting at Williamston at 10:08 and will be for another 30 minutes or more as they first had to meet Q328. Another Grand Ledge grain empty, running as G01017 with CSX 3006+3393 with 92 more cars met 328 at Fowlerville, and is now proceeding west to run around 329 so they don't get delayed anymore behind then. Grain empty can work Grand Ledge while 329 is picking up at Lansing. Will see if it takes 16 days to load this one like it did the one that went out yesterday. Meanwhile, Q32821 is currently going by the house at 10:15 with CSX 335+8831 and 73 cars.

I thought elevators had 24 hours to load in order to get favorable rates :?

I believe that last train delivered to Grand Ledge was less than 90 cars and they would not load until they received the extra cars to fill out the train at 90 cars. Hence the 16 days to before they loaded it

This whole situation was strange. Axel count for the V70604 grain that went west on Feb. 4th to Grand Ledge showed 380 axels, with two units CSX 5325+15. This would equal 92 cars, which was the axel count when they came back east yesterday. The power on this train was picked up and taken back east two days later on Feb. 6th, by Q32806, leaving no power for the train. On Feb. 15th, Q329 brought two units to use on the grain load, 3003+5349 and dropped them off at Lansing, yet it took another five days before the load went out with this power. Perhaps there was a bunch of bad orders on the empties and it took them this long to get them repaired for the load to go out.

Regarding the special rates given to grain elevators if they get them loaded and back out in 24 hours, this is true, but only for elevators who participate, yet it is not mandatory that they do so. If you don't get out it, no big deal other then the fact if you don't, you don't get the special rate.

I'm assuming you mean the Cryotrans and BNSF reefers. They go to Twin City Foods in Lake Odessa on D707 and get loaded or unloaded depending on what they're carrying.

E800-21 @ 17:49:54 Bangor mp CG60.7 with BNSF engines #8414 + #6245 & 130 empty coal cars. These 2 BNSF engines were on yesterday's Q329 along with CSX #5491. The CSX #5491 ended up being added to Q327-20 last night due to mechanical issues that were being experienced by Q327's leading engine CSX #117.
E800-21 @ 18:46 westward cleared the St Joseph Bridge.
Amtrak P370 @ 22:20:13 Bangor's Division Street mp CG60.93 with engine #4601
