Turned out to be, at least this morning, a 28 car loaded ribbon rail train with CWRX cars for GLC. K54418 with CSX 102 sat the train off in the Howell pass at 07:30. GLC with 398 leading is currently here picking the train up at 10:00 and will soon be going by the house. K544 departed engine lite at 08:00 but stopped at Williamston to pick up a repaired bad order car in the passing siding there.

Meanwhile, Q32921 went west at 09:00 with EMD 8051 leading, 286 trailing with 84 cars. Q32821 went east at 05:38 with 7792+5457+5422 and 58 cars.

Q327-21 is currently going through St. Joseph. Sounds like CSXT 806 leading.

Last I heard it was going into siding to wait for a WB coal empty to pass and to get pushers.

Q32922 by Howell at 08:48 after a 30 minutes delay due to their horn quit working coming into town, with 201+5432 and 82 cars. Happening again later a second time, they will pick up engine 102 from yesterdays GLC ribbon rail train. If it goes on the lead, the first two units will be 102 & 201. Q32822 went east at 07:16 with 495+3277 and 99 cars.

Q327-22 @ 10:36am reported by the DD at mp CG19.1 with 70 cars for the axle count. Q327 is running straight thru - no Holland stop. The CSX #4016 had been running on the D700 for a while now.

D700 is running, no real progress from Grand Rapids yet but was heard talking to the East Tower - no engine # was mentioned yet. D700 runs Sunday - Thursday.

Thank you very much.
Sounded like Q329 was being reported by the DD at mp CH104.3 @ 11:22am but the DD at mp CG44.2 for Q327 stepped all over that DD report from 104.3
