G801-01 grain load from Grand Ledge, by Howell at 07:10. 3024 + 147 on the head end. Unless I counted wrong, it had ten more cars than it had on the 81 car empty from from the day before on the G077 train. Speaking of, these G077 trains that frequently run from Plymouth to the grain elevators are bogus intentionally used numbers over what the train was called as arriving in Plymouth just like they were formally as G010 trains. Like Sparrow24 says, he reports them as they were calling signals as, which I did myself, so not to get uptight about it when when someone knows the original train number when arriving in Plymouth.

L302-30 was by Howell at 05:04 with a short train. Also, when they continue to run the same power back and forth for a week or two at a time, if does have the same power, I usually will not report the train. Rest assured, even if only one unit of the two units was changed, I would report it.
