Q326-26 @ 4:37pm reported by the DD at mp CG66.2 with CSX engines #3417 + #452 + mid CSX DPU #958. He has over 600 axles but the DD call was stepped on by radio interference. He will stop at the east end of Gross siding mp CG61.3 to wait for MoW to clear up.

The doubled up coal train N801-19 last night was broken up into 2 trains with 1 being left inside Sawyer siding mp CG104.6 & the remaining half passed by Bangor mp CG60.7 as train D801-24 @ 03:52am with BNSF engines #9104 + 1 & 130 loaded coal cars & CSX pusher engines #3209 + #3266. Earlier, D801-24 had gone by Bangor westward as lite engines & met up with N801-19. Then, N800-24, a 2nd coal train with BNSF engines #5927 + 1 had followed D801-24 passing thru Bangor between 4:27am & 4:57am. There have been 3 or 4 previous doubled empty coal trains this year having 260 cars with 4 leading engines & has been seen before having just a single leading engine & a single mid DPU engine.

E801-23 is currently going through Coloma. Sounds like the wind got one of the gates on the main street (Church St.?) in Coloma. Where I live, we had a lot of rain and some wind, but I saw online that the Coloma area got hit pretty hard during last night's round of strong thunderstorms that hit around 9 pm.
Sounds like BNSF 9104 leading.

MQT Z151 brought 92 cars down from the NorthCountry yesterday which I did not see on today’s Q327 so maybe we will see those tomorrow. Also, no Holland setoff yesterday or today so Q327 may work Waverly Yard tomorrow morning. As of mid day yesterday, there was a pair of big CSXT GE’s in Waverly Yard in addition to local geep power.

It sure is taking the awhile to get to St. Joseph. Perhaps they had to work at Sawyer?

Have they worked Sawyer at all this week? Seems like that and Holland keep getting pushed aside just to get the landbarge to Wyoming.

Q326-27 @ 3:13pm was reported by the DD at mp 66.2 (data was broken up) and had called out an Approach signal. As of 4:21pm it appears he is being held at the east end of Gross siding again mp CG61.3 as he was yesterday. No radio calls at all had been heard today from any MoW workers. Delay was due to MoW work.
Q326-27 @ 4:52:28pm at Bangor's Division St crossing mp CG60.93 with CSX engines #5271 + #990 + #4441 & 87 cars.
