Sunday night as we worked an accident on 131, a 3 unit GDLK train went by southbound. The red HCLX unit was leading what appeared to be 2 other 4 axle units. If 1 was 3534 then she got out of town at midnight. This was at CP Park.

I can't tell the exact location or what train it is. I'm at home and I hear Grand Elk doin something. Sounded like they went across 32nd avenue on their way to Grand Rapids. Actually could be heading towards Kalamazoo not entirely sure. Current time is 10:40am is about the time I heard the horns going. Just thought I would give a heads up that they're doing something. I can't go spot it because in a zoom meeting for class.
New update for 144th St in Moline MI.... They have dropped off more ballast (now two truck loads) at the crossing. There is also about 50 ties about every 100ft or so from 142nd to 144th St. Also they have been cutting trees and bushes along the track at 139th St crossing. Hopefully they start doing work sooner than latter.

3534 suffered a mechanical failure about a year or so ago. Sounds like it is fairly extensive since it wasn't really messed with afterwords. The GP7u is supposed to leave soon too. The word is both units are being traded for one or two operable engines.
