D801-26 @ 11:04am eastward reported by the DD at mp CG44.2 with 544 axles & 7,199 ft long. BNSF engines #5922 + #9309 & 130 loaded coal cars & 2 CSX pusher engines. This is the coal train that yesterday's D802-27 had moved out of Kirk siding mp CG70.2 & then went into Grand Jct siding at mp CG55.6 due to the CSX pusher engines Quarterly Inspection being due by midnight. Unsure if today's pusher engines were a different pair.

D802-27 @ 6:53pm eastward Bangor's Division St crossing mp CG60.93 with BNSF engines #5922 + #9309 & 130 loaded coal cars & CSX pusher engines #3084 + #816.
D802-27 @ 7:07pm eastward has a signal, main to siding, at the west end of Grand Junction mp CG55.6 He is tying down in Grand Junction & was told not to cut their train. There was mention of some kind of inspection must be made to the CSX pusher engines before midnight tonite (sounded like they were saying a "Q" test or "Q" inspection??) that was going to occur at West Olive but time constraints would be too late for there.
A "Q" is the quaterly locomotive inspection required by the FRA every 92 days. If the locomotive(s) need it, they can't be run.
All though still called a Q inspection it is actually a 180 day inspection now/fra wavier.

P370-28 is currently going through Riverside. Sounds like IDTX 4629 leading.

E800-28 is currently going through rainy Benton Harbor. Sounds like BNSF 5922 leading, and clearing fallen trees from the tracks.
