13:25hrs: Q328 with a pair of CSXT ES44AH units tying Lansing up pretty good right now waiting at MA for a signal to proceed.

14:20hrs. After an hour delay, finally moving east. CSXT 3089 and 3306 leading.

From what I was hearing an hour ago, crew on Q329 was taking the Q328 train to Detroit, but running as D-907.

I just got a text advisory from the city of Lansing claiming a broke down train would be blocking crossings a minimum of 30 more minutes but help was on the way. 1355

Q328 or whatever symbol currently in effect now on the move east from MA in Lansing at 14:20hrs. Can’t get a car count but it’s a long one.

Edit at 14:28. The last car is clear of the crossing but the train has stopped again and is still on the occupy circuit at Michigan Ave. people are running the gates as the slack slowly runs out and the last car comes closer to the crosswalk.

Q32801, indeed now running as D90701 with the crew from Q329, by Howell at 17:30 with CSX 3089+3306 and 129 cars. Not sure what happened at Lansing, but apparently this crew had to set off multiple cars, probably at Trowbridge. Naturally now being short on time themselves and no place to park the train, it will be tied down on the main between Brighton and South Lyon not to block crossings until another crew is able to move the train further, (if, they make Ann Pere hill)

By the sound of it, seeing they could go no where either because of the Lansing tie up, the crew from todays D708 is taking 329s train to GRP as D90801. Its been quite some day, starting I guess with last nights K train south of Bangor (west).

Q327 reported by the DD at mp CG19.1 @ 19:35 with 308 axles & 4,284 feet long. UP engine #4753 + 1 and 74 cars. Q327 to pick up cars at Gross siding mp CG63.1 & then go into Kirk siding mp CG70.2 to clear up for Amtrak.
Q327 arrived Pullman mp CG48 @ 20:21:13 - may have the same UP engines Q326 had earlier today (4753 + 4245).
Q327 arrived Bangor mp CG60.7 @ 20:42:36 (Amtrak had arrived Bangor @ 22:03:17) Q327 had to go back to Gross for an EOT unit.
