Looks like D708 and GLC are doing one of their meets today, D708 stopped just east of Ann Pere and GLC is stopped on the wye.

GLC came thru Howell at around 12:30 and D708 came thru about 10 minutes ago.

GLC's power is 382, 395 and 329, and D708 has 8350 and 4037 running elephant style, long hood facing west.

Update: D708 just got permission to reverse west thru AP at 14:14.

D708 westbound under the Isbell St. bridge in Howell at 15:49.

K597 is a steel train destined for AK Steel.

What was this K596 pulling?

Whoever said K596 was in Plymouth for LSRC was dead wrong. All that’s been by here today during that time frame was D738 and Q568. Also K596 is Detroit to the Youngstown-area train.

Thanks. I couldn’t find it anywhere where it was listed but I thought that 596 was the counterpart to 597.

327 wednesday
707a - app 112th st
735 ld, 349 trail with 107 cars
712a - restricting waverly - main to old siding
327 will tie up ee waverly yard and block both lakewood blvd and waverly ave ( 120th ave )
will be unhappy drivers on those roads today.
a little math for waverly yard
the point of switch for the crossover from the main to the old siding ( cross over switch from holland siding
relocated with the install of the new signals ) approx 6781+50
the point of switch from the old siding to the west end of waverly yard is 6741+29 = 4021' between those switches
using 300' of clearance at the switch to the we of waverly yard leaves 3721' distance between the clearance point
and the ps at waverly control point
that leaves the rear 2522' of 327 on the main east of waverly
327 was faced with a double edged sword when they arrived to work waverly
either go via the main track and not block the crossing at the ee of waverly and then block almost all of the entire
city street crossings south of the depot when they coupled to their consist with the waverly pick up of 63 cars and
get a air test and get the conductor on board. or do what they did by leaving their train east of the switch on
the old main to the we of wy yard.
837a - 327 with the 63 car pickup reverse to their consist
in checking notes: the tm at wyoming told 327 to hi ball track 23 pick up today
913a - 327 headend clears holland os - old siding to main
926a - fred clears holland
1013a - 44.2 - 692 axles, 9611'
735 lead and 349 trail with 170 cars
