No signs of movement from W003 out of Grand Rapids yet today?
As of 11am nothing has been heard & I had also checked the overnight scanner archives.
Thanks Tom, and for the current update. I will see what time he makes New Buffalo maybe.

Doesn't mean much with my counting, but 79+106 is 185 and I counted 174. Power was 408+358+6070, by Howell at 08:10. At least the first 100 cars beyond the first dozen were all GLC cars that were picked up at Ann Pere the last few days. This many cars sure ought to cut down the amount of cars on 327 going to Chicago.
D706 made it to Outer Drive (just west of Rougemere) for a yard crew to grab, but that plan changed when Q201-14 hurried out of Detroit as Q508-13 (with CSXT 353, CSXT 3225, and CSXT 2638) was coming in with a monster train of their own after setting off their intermodal cars to Oak Yard. D738-14 is currently working Livonia customers on the Levan Spur with CSXT 6513 and a misrouted car for Lake State taking a tour of the area.

W003-14 @ 2:21pm westward reported clear of the St Joseph Bridge with CSX engine #9969 & 2 Geometry cars.
W003-14 @ 2:26pm westward reported by the DD mp CG91.9 with 12 axles & 215 feet long. HBD alarms both sides for axle 9.
(This is about the extent of the scanner's radio range).

V834 grain empty with 90 cars went west by Howell at 15:05. CSX 103+598 on the head end. Must have gone to Grand Ledge or would have heard it as Williamston by now as it ran around its train. Train may have been V874. GLC with 396+390+329 was over on CSX at 13:00 to pick up the split crossing 84 cars that D908 sat off Sunday morning. They put the 9 cars that D908 did not pick up, and 30 others in the pass for D708 to get today, if they do. Speaking of, D708 arrived in Howell at 16:10 with 25 cars for GLC including what must be 15 of those pot ash cars that came out of Muskegon. Tops were covered and cars looked to be brand new.

Those are bottom ash cars, from the burning of coal at the BC Cobb plant in Muskegon.

Great to see you reporting movements in Howell again - take care, Bob!

hoooweee CSX is kicking the rust off of the Plymouth sub this month!

Drove thru Ensel and it's pretty cleared out with the backlog of cars going to and from GLC cleared out.

Anyone got anything on the k-train in GR?

I heard D700-14 eastward in St. Joseph around 12:45 am. Sounds like they may or may not go to Sawyer tomorrow.

D70515 had 153 cars out of Detroit this morning with 9171 feet of train. By Howell at 04:30 with CSX 3131+5497+8619. The entire train had cars and types and kinds of cars you used to see on 328-329 that have not been through here since April. 18 stone cars as well. Nice to see a rare SD50 (-3). On the other hand, nice to see anything the way the last five months have been.

Hello Donnie, if you were listening to the Broadcastify on-line scanner, they're having issues. The feed keeps stopping after less than 2 minutes of activity & have to hit start again & have to keep doing that. Q327's DD19.1 report was found in Broadcastify's archives & he had 232 axles & 3,220 feet long around 7:28am. The scanner archieves don't time stamp the logged calls, it just shows the start/end time for each 1/2 hour segment of time it has stored. I used their "Report Problem" tab for this issue.
