Tom, are they saying Tie work on the radio? I went out there yesterday and found the curve rail gang, not a tie gang. Didn’t see ties staged anywhere, either. Perhaps the dispatcher is just confused as well.

If there is in fact a tie gang, I wanna find it! Lol

Early morning update as the garbage truck decided to make noise at 6:15am...
d70730 was east by lake odessa at 6:30am. Amtrak P371 is going through Zeeland, and some other train on CSX seems to be going through the east side of GR westbound, might be Y306.
7am edit - superscanner indeed says it's Y306 westbound at MP151 now. Q327 across the defect detector at MP19.1 heading west into Zeeland.
8:40am - N80030 at East Saugatuck northish bound to West Olive.
