772 axles and over 11,500 feet of train as well when it went by Howell at 07:28. Surprised they made Ann Pere hill as I have seen trains with far less cars than that stall. Must have not been all that much tonnage in the train. Q32931 went west at 09:47 with 5292+5467 on the head end and 58 cars. Last 20 cars were stone loads. As reported earlier, grain empty V91930 went to Grand Ledge overnight with 92 cars and three units. CSX 304 on the lead. 3rd unit may have been foreign.
