N800-05 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like BNSF 5694 leading. They'll be meeting pushers at Wells.
P370 is out of my scanner range but should be around Hartford by now.

What I’m guessing is a yard job or 327 working Waverly? Train is stopped blocking the crossing’s at and around the depot in Holland and a brakeman is out assessing the cars.

**327 departing Waverly at 8:12

Y121 is currently south on the Hamilton Branch, with about 8 cars. Two are hoppers, which means a run to Hamilton!

** As of 10:00, the train is approaching the unincorporated community of Fillmore.

Speaking of tie loads. There was a random gon, CSXT reporting marks, with ties staged right near mainstreet in Lake Odessaa Wednesday night on the elavator siding. Wonder if it was on purpose or if it was a set out for bad order.
