Today I caught H708 around 11:45am working the McKinley siding picking up cars from FP Supply.

Then around 2:10pm a very late Q310 came south with CSX 443 in YN2 paint leading 7005 rebuild.

Of course I've been waiting on Q311, and it just snuck by me north through Mounds 3:35pm, I did not catch the power, but it sounded like CSX leader, definitely not a UP horn, so the UP's might be trailing.

Doesnt sound like too bad a day of railfanning for you. I didnt get to see if the UP’s were trailing today or not, but they most likely would’ve been trailing if they were. Csx would keep the original power on Q311 from Russel, and just add the power to the consist at parsons.

A rough day on the Scottslawn south end, H708 came south around 2pm with CSX 157 in YN2 paint solo on the train 21 cars. They've been sitting at Camp over an hour now as NS has a tie gang on the Dayton District. The crew is going to outlaw, so it sounds like they will have to back the train up to McKinley siding and break up the train to clear the main line.

So all Scottslawn trains should be holding for now, Q311 will be vary late today, has CSX 7005 rebuild leader, I will try to go see it whenever it finally comes north.

I got a loaded grain extra coming south today around 2:10pm with CSX 3469 & 32xx, didn't catch a symbol though.

Q311 just came north at 3:30pm had CSX 3098 & 3188 with a shorter train then usual.

Y103 with CSX 5392 & 5359 was waiting on the Buckeye Line north of CP Mounds, soon after Q311 cleared, they came on the Scottslawn connection to get cars off the Interstate Cold Storage spur, those engines should be the Q147 power later tonight.

It was dark for me to see the numbers on the locomotives of Q147 last night but it went into the siding at Marysville around 9:20pm, later than usual, not sure what it was meeting, maybe Q146, I happened to be driving by as it was heading in at a slow speed. It was two Gevo locomotives though, very good chance it was Y103’s power like you mentioned.

Today's Q311 came north through CP Mounds around 3:45pm, had 6 units on it, the 6th was GOOS 106, an ex-CSX GP15 still in dark future but logos painted over.

Yesterday's Q311 came north through Mounds around 3pm and had CSX 3248 leading & 8365 SD40 trailing 2nd of 2 units.

Today's Q311 just came north at 2:30pm, I missed it as I got home, the horn sounded different, so might be foreign power.

3 extras also used the Scottslawn Friday night, one train came south 8pm I missed it, but then an empty coal train came south around midnight looked like the U664 or U632, all black CSX coal cars, and a grain extra went north after 1am once that coal train made it to Parsons.

I was shocked to get 3 extras in a day, when most days there is none.

Q311 just came north through Mounds early around 12:15pm had CSX 3487 & 5396 and near the end of the train there's a cut of reefer cars from Interstate Cold Storage going back to UP, the last 1 is a vintage maroon SP reefer.
