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.
There’s 2 D706s today?

I'm thinking that's in reference to yesterday afternoon's D706-28 (with CSXT #3211 + #738) that was reported by the DD104.3 at 3:51pm & today's early morning D706-29 (with CSXT #5320 + #4051) that was reported by the DD104.3 at 3:12am & both ended up being in Detroit before one of them departed as the D705-29.

That sounds about right. So you’d have 2 GR crews overlapping there having come off the same job within less than a day.
