D706 by Williamston @ 0628. 2 units on the front, not able to get the numbers. Is it just me, or is the 705/706 schedule all over the place?

It’s a tad bit wonky. I, for one, am enjoying the unpredictable nature of it. I’m just glad we have more trains to watch.

13:10- Q326 lead engine CSXT 3191 good over the DD at Zeeland MP19.1.

Meanwhile, D702 sounds like they are switching Buzzi inbGrandville. Their lead loco is CSXT 2318, a former GP35, one of a quickly dwindling number of road slugs on csx. After they finish at Buzzi and Q326 passes they should make their trip to Waverly Yard/Holland.

Caught a southbound grain train in Holly at 1:18pm. 2 CSX engines leading (didn’t get numbers). Even though it’s on LSRC, I figured it would be relevant since it’ll be on CSX eventually.

📸14:35 D702 west rolling into Zeeland with 52 cars, CSXT RD SLUG 2318 leading. Two cuts of ash gons and lots of mixed stuff for everyone. These new (old) MWCX open top hoppers with their BN markings painted out are interesting. Cascade green really seems to age nicely.

Van den Bosch feed has DSRC 8022 covered hopper on their spur, the first car I’ve seen spotted there in a couple months. Plastcore has one covered hopper. Z Lumber is empty.
