D706 was back on its regular early morning schedule today. By Howell at 05:38 with 5 cars. This is four less than the nine whopping cars they had early evening yesterday. This mornings rush to Detroit cars consisted of four box cars and one tank.

Q326-29 @ 12:36pm eastward at the Holalnd Depot mp CG25.3 with CSXT engines #328 + #5358 & 97 cars. He was slowing to a stop & hearing him doing work at Waverly/Holland at 1:07pm. We did hear the other day a conversation between Q326 & Q327 saying Q326 will be making set offs there as their new routine.

G868 thru the WE of Brighton at around 14:10, sounds like D705 took the siding.
Green Oak DD reports 384 axles and 5675' working out to 2 six-axle locomotives and 93 cars.

They're usually running DPU when I see them, maybe it's just a short train, speaking of, they haven't left the siding yet.
They got permission to exit the siding at 14:43, will update when they're thru the WE.
Out of the WE at around 14:55.

Everybody including myself is so used to seeing 738+3211 on the same train everyday since Dec. 2nd, that nobody noticed D70529 today, (with two D706 jobs in Detroit at the same time, that this afternoons D705 had 738 leading, but left 3211 behind in favor of 5320 trailing, (both on the head end) with 44 cars. Maybe 3211 will now be paired with 4051.

15:15 Q326 power (CSXT 5358 and 326) 📸has been run through Plaster Creek and is now on the Service heading for East Tower.

Meanwhile, CSXT track department has mostly completed the demolition of the tracks leading in to the Wyoming Engine House. Ties and rails are stacked. It looks like the wye lead track to the north will be maintained? Sad to see, for sure.
