Where is this light power usually going?

Hi, those 2 CSX engines are usually the pusher engines stationed at Grand Junction siding mp CG55.6 but yesterday they ended up meeting Q327 at Grand Junction & they were added to Q327's train due to the leading engine having a dynamic brake failure. So, CSX #3277 & #555 ended up going to Chicago yesterday. Maybe, they'll return on today's Q326? Another pair of engines, the CSX #3009 + ? went to Grand Junction yesterday to serve as the pushers for N801 the loaded coal train.

They usually go to Wells to push coal trains more often than GJ (at least in recent years).
