Saw the lights were green for westbound Q329 in Brighton, so I went to the wooden bridge in Howell to wait for it. It arrived at 5:35pm:

Some of the aggregate cars are pretty full and others only about half. Whoever is loading them has to watch out for the individual cars load limit I guess.

With all of the stone moving to GR and Lansing this year, one can't help but wonder how many stone trains we would've seen up here if stone still ran as separate trains. Oh well.
