This would be the correct axel count of the two, Tom. Had 119 cars by Howell at 10:45, after setting off 31 cars at Lansing. CSX 327 was the 2nd unit behind 3160 from yesterdays Q326. They had only two units. Q32923 was early today, by Howell at 07:55 with CSX 3414 single unit and 44 cars. Unknown where the meet with Q328 was,

Thanks for the heads up about the CSX #327 :) Bangor had a long power outage yesterday causing the cams to be down & I had followed the trains by the scanner.

327 was just informed of an outage on the NS as they called east Livingston. Sounds like everyone's coming to a stop. 326 is still stuck on the Barr Sub waiting for the outage to clear up.

BL2-1843: Car is former Amtrak diner 8500. Paperwork for this car, and the one that moved earlier (Antrak car 8532) was made out on October 24th to move from Amtrak Beech Grove to GLC Owosso and has only made it thus far to date. Currently sitting on the Howell passing siding waiting for GLC pick up. In addition to much graffiti (one side far more than the other, car has a lot of surface rust, especially on the car ends near the doors. Don't know the age of these cars or how its been since they have been used, or, if someone else beside Amtrak, but it looks like a lot or work and expense to get them into operating condition.

This was in Ensel the other day. Made its way onto 708.

I took this on Friday? Same day as the GL grain train empties came into Grand Ledge.
