P370-21 is currently going through Riverside. Sounds like IDTX 4613 leading.
Q327-21 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like CSXT 916 leading.

Wrote down 3271 for the second unit when by Howell at 08:12 and counted 88 cars.
It was 3271. Just a slip o' the keys on my part! Dang small cell phone keyboards :)

Q327 was thru Bangor at 20:15 with the same power from Q329 and 97 cars. The last 15 were empty CSX ballast hoppers.

I believe Q328 has some form of broken coupler. Last 30 or so cars are cut and blocking whitneyville road while the rest of the train is in the siding at Elmdale. Power is currently on the cutoff end

Thx. Just listened to the overnight archive on the feed and got this info:
2:40am - GDLK Z739 heading from Hughart over to Wyoming Yard to do their pickup.
4am after passing east end fox, q328 calling the trainmaster. stuck in thornapple river valley. ATCS shows a train in the siding at Elmdale, on main between Elmdale and Fox, and lined westbound into siding at Fox.
down to 22lbs on brakepipe. can't get headlights on, breaker problems. Lead unit csxt 4229 computer went out on it. CSXT 5478 trailing. Trying to double the hill at Thornapple. On the cut they tried to take, had major wheel slip at MP136.9. At 6:30am, q328 headend with engineer at Alto, taxi up there too, told taxi to go to McCords to go get the conductor. Took 57 cars with them. Put in siding at Elmdale. As of 7am, plan was to put first cut to Elmdale, shove 2nd set of cars to Fox, go to downtown GR, spin power, have CSXT 5478 lead, and take cars from Fox to Lansing.
D700 can get to Hartford and Coloma today, not like Sawyer though due to MOW.
9:26am update - D70023 west at Bangor, CSXT 6549, 15 cement hoppers, 1 loaded lumber centerbeam for Grandville, 5 steel coil hoppers, and 1 tank likely for Hartford.

Thanks for the update Z. Q328 just tied down at Fox and the plan is to go to Sunnyside, turn the power, get another engine and then re-crew and start heading back East

As of 10:30am, q328's lite power is at Plaster Creek in GR. recrew for q328 is on duty at 11:45am. Grabbing a CSXT 8400 series for extra power. Recrew will be done in GR, then new crew will get cars at Fox, then Elmdale, and continue towards Lansing.
11:24am - D700 east at Bangor, CSXT 6549, 5 steel coil cars, 1 loaded centerbeam for Grandville, and 15 cement hoppers for Grandville. Q329 likely in the blocks between Lake Odessa and Lansing.

Q328 east with 5478, 4229 and 8400 light power at Breton 12:07. Grabbing their first half of train at Fox, sounds like they’ll be meeting Q329 there as well.
