326 was in Bangor at 3am, and then by the 44 DD at 7:40am, but after passing Bangor they are to go to Grand Junction to be recrewed by 327's crew?

Yes, according to what I had heard the Dispatcher telling Q326. Apparently, the Q327 crew was on duty at 5:00am, transported by their taxi service to Grand Junction & then moved Q326-29 out of Grand Junction to head to Grand Rapids.

The GR local (can't remember the symbol) is working at Beverly right now. Horn sounds like it is just a few blocks away (well, it kind of is. :) )

Heard @ 11:21am the St Joseph Bridge Tender telling some CSX workers she is to lock the bridge & go home. Shutting down their bridge tender duties for how long wasn't stated. She did mention it was related to the virus.
