Y106 running around itself at Elmdale. Looks like Q329 is west of Lansing, but not out of the TWC territory yet. Maintainer has between the signals on the main at Fox.

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.
Q329 @ 12:46pm reported by the DD mp CH104.3 with 253 axles (count error). Assuming 252 axles, he had 60 cars.
Q329 @ 13:25 was reported by the DD mp CH126.3 with 252 axles.

Does anyone know the mile post for "Mary Jane" on the Grand Rapids subdivision & why it is named that? I hear trains reporting by "Bravo", Mary Jane, the mp 51. I had found Bravo on the track charts Railroadtube had recently gave us a link for & see that Bravo is at mp CG46. Thank you guys :)
