[LansingRailFan post says: The grain train in Grand Ledge’s symbol is G714-15. Doesn’t have power yet or a crew call.[/quote]

This train has been in Grand Ledge since January 29th when it arrived there as V714. Power on the empty was 127+569 which after sitting there with the train for four or five days, the power was picked up and went east on a 706 job. Perhaps today's D705 will bring some more power for the train.

Storage cars? They have stored empty grain trains on their spur before. Or is this confirmed as a symboled train that is in the system for power, and crew call?

It’s confirmed and more cars have been since added to fill it out. It’s destined for Valdosta, GA but has been delayed due to issues in GA. That’s why they removed the power.
