​D700-29 @ 8:31pm westward reported mp CG28 with CSX engine #6914 leading.
​D700-29 @ 9:17pm westward Bangor's Center St crossing mp CG60.35 with CSX engine #6914 & 3 cars (2 tank cars & the special 8 axle flat car with a transformer).
​D802-29 @ 9:36pm reported by the DD44.2 with 544 axles. CSX #3094 leading + CSX #428(?) & it appears he has an empty coal train with 2 engines & 130 cars.
Per the Bangor chat with ~Z~ sounds like it's E800-30 is being hauled by D802-29 & will cut the CSX engines at the west end of Grand Junction mp CG55.6
As of 11:34pm, not a word has been heard from D802 or E800. They were heard on the scanner talking at Grand Junction earlier but has been a long silence since.

Geometry train just went East at Glenlord Rd./Stevensville.

Several cars and a GP. There’s only a narrow field of view from my office so that’s the best I can say.
