About 14 minutes later, know if it's passed Holland Station? I heard a train but unsure if I'd arrived too late for it

Edit: Got it! Learning some timing around here

That is D802-05 & at the Holland Depot mp CG25.3 westward at 11:16am. The plan is for him to take his train into Grand Jct siding mp CG53.9, cut the train for the crossings, and then bring the CSXT engines out & place them in the east end of Grand Jct. Dispatcher had said it might not be until tomorrow for an "E" crew to move the train out.

Hello Bluewonderrails, you'll hear the train engineers say, for example, "clear Holland" but he's referring to his leading engine. Me, when I say "clear Holland", it's for the last car going by & that the entire train has cleared by the location. That was at 11:16am for D802-05 with the above train Tiout posted.

D70806 arrived in Howell at 2pm with 30 cars for GLC. Picked up ten from GLC and went back west to Lansing at 2:30. 24 hours late, but Mondays D706 & D705 met at Fowlerville at 2pm. 705 had 43 cars, 706 had 58 including another 30 or so stone empties. Same sets of power as the day before, but going in opposite directions.

I haven't heard a peep from D706-06 yet, no Grand Rapids Yard activity, nor, EC1's heard on Channels 8 & 14. I've been checking thru the archives for EC1's, too, (starting at midnight) for any logged D706 calls & as of 7:07pm - nothing. I'm going to re-check the archives again to see if I may have missed anything. Maybe, no crew for D706, yet?
