327 having trouble with the dpu and after 50 car pickup at wy, he's
810 axles - 10662' - total tonnage ?
wondering if he will have to double the hill that starts at the old st joe depot and goes west to hilltop.
the grade west up the hill get you out of the st joseph river basin. trouble is iirc the speed restriction
across the st joe drawbridge will not allow for a running start at the hill.
in the old days that was dt from st joe to vine, rt hand running and was ctc and bonded on both rails.

N801-28 is currently going through Riverside. Sounds like BNSF 6195 leading.
Q326-29 should be around Hudsonville at this point.

20:30: Q326 approaching Tippy Cow! Loooong train, 6 coils right up front, probably from Arlington. Holland cars looked to be sprinkled throughout. Faded BN green covered hoppers in the mix.

If they did indeed setout at Holland, I wonder if there are other Holland bound cars that ended up scattered in the consist that will find themselves heading back there on tomorrow's Q327 or a future D702?

Speaking of D702, they dropped off two loaded lumber centerbeams at Zeeland Lumber today, the first in a while. They did not pick up the BNSF covered hopper at Vanden Bosch grain on their return (westbound) run, however.

Was out biking around downtown Grand Rapids tonight. Rode west on Fulton to John Ball Zoo. Heard a horn of Y297 going south through town, so turned around and got this shibby video of them tonight at the old Amtrak depot approx 10pm.
