Ogihara at Howell (Thai-Summit) along with many other industries is completly shut down. No srrap going out but are now getting empties brought back in to add to their collection again. After 51 car empties being in the plant at one time last year, the count had dropped to nine cars at its lowest.

D70827 after setting off cars at Webberville coming east, came direct to Howell power light and cleaned out the passing siding & transfer of cars delivered to CSX by GLC. Departed westbound from Howell at 15:23 with 4035+4046 on the head end and 101 cars, 6,164 feet in length. Perhaps they will take the entire train to GRP to save 329 some grief tomorow. If not, another good day to have one unit out of Detroit. Sounds like one way or the other, the 101 cars wil probablyl get to GRP by another D907 job over the weekend.

N800-26 @ 17:48 cleared the St Joseph Bridge.
N800-26 @ 18:41:22 Bangor's Division Sreet crossing mp CG60.93 with BNSF engines #5603 + #6245 & 130 loaded coal cars. Usually gets 2 pusher engines added at the west end of Grand Junction mp CG55.6 but haven't heard any radio calls & may have tied his train down instead. Didn't hear the DD at mp CG44.2 report him.
@ 20:40 heard on the scanner "reset applied 3094" sounds like the usual CSX pusher engines #3094 + #486 are now working with N800-26 at Grand Junction.
D801-27 @ 21:48 reported by the DD mp CG44.2 moving N800-26 having 544 axles: BNSF engines #5603 + #6245 & 130 loaded coal cars & the 2 CSX pusher engines.

Don! Maybe I haven't been keeping up with this thread as much as I have in the past, but I feel like I haven't seen you posting in a long time. Good to see you back (if indeed you were gone). :D
