No one in GR (ok, maybe 1 or 2 people at this point) is qualified to Toledo anymore. There is not enough consistent Toledo-GR traffic anymore to warrant keeping crews qualified south of Plymouth.

Q32925 by Howell at 08:22 with CSX 35+8830, returning power from yesterdays Q328 and 47 cars. Q32825 west east at 06:15 with a long train, well over 100 cars. Power would have been either 292+3326 from yesterdays Q326, or, 5384+397 from yesterdays Q329. (whichever doesn't go on todays Q327) Missed the train because I wanted to be first in line at 06:00 to get Paczki's, which I was, and got 14 which should last well into tomorrow. Train was honking for Highlander Way crossing when I walked out of the bakery, but still going by the house when I got home.
