Hi, I had searched thru the radio archieves & I couldn't hear where D801 ended up moving N800-27 - they may have changed their plans & nothing heard as of yet about Q326 getting Pusher engines added. Q326 should be going thru Bangor in a few minutes (around 3pm or just before). Q326 reported by mp 66 at 2:46pm

Q329-28 @ 14:52 reported by the DD mp CH126.3 with 640 axles & 9,688 ft long. CSX engines #5114 + #397 & 157 cars. Same count as DD CH104.3 report earlier.
Q326-28 @ 14:53:45 Bangor's Division St crossing mp CG60.93 with CSX engines #416 + #213 & 149 cars. Waiting to hear if he is to get pushers added. Listened thru the radio archieves & didn't hear D801 picking up N800-27 - change in plans maybe.
Q326-28 @ 15:27 was reported by the DD mp CG44.2 with 608 axles & 8,898 ft long (2 engines & 149 cars) and @ 15:29 reported by Wells Siding mp CG41.4 Apparently, no Pusher engines are being added. He must have enough empty cars in his consist that kept him below 10,000 tons where Pushers aren't needed.

@ 15:23 heard D700-29 asking the St Joseph Bridge Tender the whereabouts for Q326-29 & the Bridge Tender had replied no movement on Q326 from Chicago yet possibly because of a de-railment. Tender didn't specify if it was Q326 or some other train that may have derailed.
