Q327-02 @ 09:37am reported on the move out of Holland mp CG25.3 with CSX engines #353 + #4064. He had gone into Holland with 116 cars.
D700-02 @ 10:58am westward with the CSX #4050 reported from mp CG6.
Q327-02 @ 10:59:50am Bangor's Center St crossing mp CG60.35 with CSX engines #353 + #4064 & 112 cars. He had dropped off 4 cars in Holland.
​D700-02 @ 11:19am westward reported by the DD mp CG19.1 with 63 axles (+1 axle count error) CSX #4050 & 14 cars. Sounds like no Holland stop.

Tom, I’m at the west end of 140th south of Holland and can hear horns blowing 6 miles to the east of me at East Saugatuck. Sounds like a WB train. Any idea? Or is that still 326 now just after coming up the hill?

Edit: I’m guessing the train I’ve been hearing blowing for the last 10 min or so is 326 as it’s close to Holland now. And now I’m hearing a horn toward East Saugatuck. Pushers break off 326 to head back west for another coal train?

Hi, yes the pushers broke away & returning to Grand Junction. Q326 at 4:08pm was by mile post 36 & was reported by the DD at mp 19.1 @ 4:57pm. They usually return the pusher engines back to Grand Junction siding & haven't heard any updates for a loaded coal.

Heard the RN call a G94431 three times a few hours ago with no response. This should be the grain load from Grand Ledge that I have been waiting to return from the empty of three days ago. So far, have not heard a thing or seen it go by. Still looking for the rear two units on this train which should now be the lead two units.

Edit: G94431 by Howell at 01:08. 5329+5267+304 with 95 cars.
