Still a lot left, not many still running as the majority are all sitting in storage at various locations.

Q32905 by Howell at 08:50 5429+8441 and BNSF 5874+8775 with 88 cars. With this much power, good day to pick up the 76 plus cars sitting at Lansing since Friday unless they ran a D907 to take them to GRP. Q32804 went east at 06:26 with 389+4051+5215 and 79 cars.

EDIT: 329 will pick up ALL GRP cars, what is in the yard first and then those on main two. Should have quite a lengthy train when leaving Lansing

Hear anything yet on Q329's location. Wondering if they can get to GRR intact with the potential land barge after they leave Lansing.
