Q326-29 @ 11:27am eastward reported by the DD at mp CG91.9 the data was stepped on. CSX #817 is leading & may also have the CSX #5251 + #3065 (all 3 of these engines were on yesterday's Q327).
Q326-29 @ 11:43am eastward reported clear of the St Joseph Bridge. From a viewer at St Joe, Q326 is running with just 2 engines today & has CSX #3065 as a rear engine (car count is unknown at this time).

19:00 hrs, CSX units are in the siding at Hudsonville putting together the empty well cars and preparing to take them to Wyoming. Perhaps tomorrow will be a unit table train as well.

I saw him too, only I was at Inkster Road when he passed by a few minutes later. Didn't think to look at the time, as I was quite busy at the time. But, I was doing my job nearby and thought I'd heard a horn...thought it was my imagination. THEN...a couple of minutes later, I heard the horn, looked toward the tracks, and saw the intermodal train pass by. I think that was the first through train I'd seen on there since Easter, anyway. You have no idea how good it felt to see that pass by --- it felt like we were returning to some sort of normalcy again!
