13:48, Q326 East clear zeeland, CSXT 3084 leading and 816 tail, nice assortment of cars today including a whole lineup of CSXT blue boxcars and Canadian Pacific covered hoppers bear the rear.

Did I hear both a D702 and Y121 out and about on the super scanner?

Caught Q326 at 76th St on the east side of Zeeland at 1:54pm, paced it through Hudsonville, and then again at Broadway Ave in Grandville at 2:17pm. Been quite some time since I've watched a train in person with a DPU, adds some extra enjoyment.

I guess that’s what they had to do since they aren’t running d707.
