S38528 should be going by Williamston at the moment with the longest cut of intermodal to date. Thought the entire train was going to be double stacks for awhile. 145 Container Platforms on the head end, most doubles, with 90 freight behind. Sure would like know the length of this one. CSX 5392+5467+3031 by Howell at 15:45.

EDIT: 582 Axels, 10,380 feet per the DD at 104.3 Changing crews around Lake Odessa.

Local switching Alto around 1:15pm; ~8 tanks, two box cars lined up WB. Couldn't stay too long, but no 384/85's sighted.

What looks like another Q385, or maybe Q506, is idling at Lilley Rd. in Plymouth. Facing NB with CSX 5210 + 225 leading. Mixed freight, couple of Cryo-Trans cars near the front (but not connected to each other).

WB intermodal + autoracks turning south at Plymouth. CSX 85 + 384? + 12 double stacks, 1 single, and 5 autoracks. Got distracted so I am very unsure of 2nd unit #.

Northbound CSX V765-27 originated at Columbus today, and just passed by Middle River north of Plymouth. Was too dark to see the numbers. Two CSX CW44AC's hauling 90 grain empties.

Q38429 had 90 cars when it went by me at 00:08 this morning:

From SW at 6:23pm yesterday:What looks like another Q385, or maybe Q506, is idling at Lilley Rd. in Plymouth. Facing NB with CSX 5210 + 225 leading. Mixed freight.

It was Q38527 by Howell at 03:30 with 129 cars. 3rd 385 train in 15 hours, and more to come I see. No intermodal on either Q38429 or Q38527.

327-30 had dead batteries on the first set they were assigned to, so now their power will be 5107+3031.... After the burned out headlights are replaced.
