Q32903 by Howell at 09:25 with 127 cars and 45 loads of heavy stone on the head end. 3399 leading, with 3404 DPU 79 cars back and working hard. Q32803 went east at 06:00 with 566+3443 on the head end with 95 cars. As reported earlier, Grand Ledge grain load, G94431 went east at 01:08 with 5329+5267+304 who also had 95 cars. No work at Lansing today for 329 so if the 127 cars I totaled up before and after the DPU don't add up, than I counted wrong, but should be close.

Cleared Tippy Cow in Grandville about 3:30pm. Good thing they weren't a longer train and needing pushers as they had a LP tank car on the rear.
Beacon Recycling near Godfrey in GR had 7 hoppers onsite.

Impressive that both 326 & 327 had a pair of YN2 units today. D70803 with 4035+4046 just left Howell at 20:00 with 76 cars in tow for tomorrows Q329 pick up, regardless if it takes one or two days to get them all. There was a car, or cars in the Brighton pass that D708 was supposed to get today but did not have time. Have no idea, how many or how they got there.

Heard dispatch around 7:25am calling Q329-04 with CSX engine #7779(?) leading to copy EC1 for meeting Q328-04 at "Eckles" ? Looking at an old 2005 CSX Time Table for the Detroit Sub-division, I found an Eckles Rd mp CH23.0. I'm also seeing 3rd rail being shown in that area, is that for the Detroit People Mover?
Q328-04 from the radio archieves between 03:29am/03:59am reported by the DD mp CH126.3 with CSX engines #213 + #416 & 130 cars.

Q327-04 @ 07:31am reported by the DD mp CG19.1 with 332 axles & 4,741 ft long. CSX engines #3399 + #3404(?) & 80 cars - going into Holland to drop off some.
