Sounds like there is a G706 that brought power from GR to pick up the grain train at Grand Ledge. D707 is going to wait at Ensel for the grain to go east.

G706 Grand Ledge grain load had CSX 216 leading and 5352 trailing when going east by Howell at 03:52 this morning with 89 cars. 216 was power off of Q326 a couple days ago. Trailing unit 5352 was the leader, one of three units, that went west on the V70621 empty to Grand Ledge Sunday evening by Howell at 23:52. Either the trailing two units later went back to Plymouth power light, or they are currently still in GRP.

Looking at the wiki, I just now noticed that 150/151 and 131/132 are no longer listed. Were they abolished or something? If so, I can't recall coming across info on that, so I must have terrible memory or am really out of the loop.
