D708 departed Webberville eastbound at 15:00. Has work at Fortech at Green Oak and will run around their train in South Lyon. Will be meeting D705 enroute somewhere.
Working in Fowlerville first.

New power for D70530 today, and "hot" ones beside. By Howell at 3:45pm with CSX 5468 leading, extremely rare C40-8W 7801 second, and GP40-2 6341 trailing which I have not seen in 24 years. Assigned to the Baltimore-Philadelphia area for years, this is the former B&O Chessie 4447, the very last unit to be renumbered CSX. 705 had 53 cars.

Wondering if the #6341 will be the replacement for the CSXT #2742 that was seen going west on Q327-30 today? The CSXT #2742 had been paired up with the CSXT #6244 as the power for D700 & D702.

D700-30 @ 09:30:08pm westward Bangor's Center St crossing mp CG60.35 with CSXT engine #6244 & 5 coil cars. He was supposed to go into Gross Siding mp CG61.3 to clear up for Amtrak, but, Amtrak is running 1 1/2 hours late. They may just let D700 go into Hartford mp CG68.7 where his work is to begin.

At 9:45pm, Dispatch gave the ok for D700 to go Hartford.
