IT WAS DIFFERENT LISTENING TO Q326 YARD HIS TRAIN. CALLING ROUGE TOWER INSTEAD OF THE EAST TOWER. TM IS PICKING THEM UP AT THE WEST END AS THERE WAS NO CAB CALLED. WHOEVER WAS IN THE TOWER AT ROUGEMERE WAS USING THE LETTER\NUMBER SYMBOLS FOR TRACKS. HAVEN'T HEARD THAT IN YEARS. SOUNDS LIKE IT WILL TAKE THEM SOME TIME TO WORK OUT THE BUGS BUT IT'S WORKING.....SO FAR.

​D700-29 @ 9:17pm westward Bangor's Center St crossing mp CG60.35 with CSX engine #6914 & 3 cars (2 tank cars & the special 8 axle flat car with a transformer).
​D802-29 @ 9:36pm reported by the DD44.2 with 544 axles. CSX #3094 leading + CSX #428(?) & it appears he has an empty coal train with 2 engines & 130 cars.
Per the Bangor chat with ~Z~ sounds like it's E800-30 is being hauled by D802-29 & will cut the CSX engines at the west end of Grand Junction mp CG55.6
As of 11:34pm, not a word has been heard from D802 or E800. They were heard on the scanner talking at Grand Junction earlier but has been a long silence since.

Geometry train just went East at Glenlord Rd./Stevensville.

Several cars and a GP. There’s only a narrow field of view from my office so that’s the best I can say.
