Correct. Two car pick up at Lansing if that's what you call "building a train" in the earlier post with photo. 47 cars by me in Howell at 08:04. Not many cars to pick up when D708 has not come east in eight days. Q32827 went east at 06:08 with 8095+5110 on the head end and 52 cars.

Where does 150 go?

Ensel has a lot of cars for 707 or 708. Plus a whole lot of empty stone hoppers at StoneCo.

All they picked up was a tanker car and a BNSF reefer car.

Q150 is a North Baltimore-Detroit intermodal, Q151 is it's opposite-direction counterpart. If neither have to work Oak Yard (the intermodal yard off of I-96 and the Southfield Freeway), they will take the Lincoln Secondary instead.

CSX's two other intermodal trains that enter Michigan are Q131 and Q132, both originating/terminating in Mexico City, both more commonly seen on the Lincoln Secondary. These often have UP power as that's what they interchange with in Illinois.

391 would be correct as that is the "Spirit of Dante" unit which shows.

Q32928 by Howell at 08:58 with CSX 3040+5317 with 59 cars. Q32828 went east at 05:21 with CSX 761+391 and 134 cars. Despite the fact yesterdays report saying D70827 was on duty at noon Friday, they did not run east again if they ran at all. This will mean come Monday, it will be at least 11 days since they have been to Howell. Lansing yard has to be packed with cars for GLC.

Sources say that while d70827 got annulled, d70828 is on duty in Lansing now, so maybe you'll see d708 before Monday.
