Apparently the UP power from Q326 last night will eventually go to West Olive to take a set of empties west. This will be the second time this has happened. I’m told the UP power takes the train to a different mine somewhere in the Powder River basin (on the UP) and that Consumers really likes the coal that they get from it.

Now that August is here, the power on 705-706 remains the same. Today is the 16th day in a row for 4287+8619 to be on one set, and the 14th day in a row for the 286+131 on the other set, when, they can find a crew to run the train. As SD80mac says, perfect utilization for power. This mornings D70501 train, with its 77 car train out of Detroit had 594 leading the 4287+8619 set, another unit for Peaker, which may get set out in Lansing. By Howell at 11:15.

I wonder if they are still having PTC problems with 8619, because they seem to be turning that set every time now in GR and Detroit.
