​Q327 reported from mp CG30 @ 11:07pm EST. We can't hear the DD at mp CG44.2 reporting anymore - had heard today CSX had reduced its radio output power because Chicago complained about being able to hear it, so, unknown at the moment how many cars were dropped off in Waverly. It had 144 cars when Q327 arrived there.
Q327 arrived Pullman mp CG48 @ 23:42:18 with CN #5670 + CSX and 129 cars.
Q327 arrived Bangor mp CG60.7 @ 00:04:55 Jan 14th.

707 east clear muliken, 328 clear we ee elmdale at 0345. I didn't catch the numbers. Sounded like G010 was still trying to get it together about 2230 when I went to bed. They were expecting to be headed east by 2300. Something about a crew called for Pontiac but I didn't catch it.

Grain load from Grand Ledge went east by Howell at 01:07 overnight. Relief crew met them at the yard office in Plymouth, not at Pontiac Trail in South Lyon. As it turned out, the lead unit they needed to pull the load out from the one unit empty was CSX 3438, the second unit on 326 that was at Bangor at noon on Sunday behind CSX 172. They split them apart at GRP, turned the 3438 around and ran engine light to Grand Ledge to merge with the 7794 that was on the empty. CSX 172, as reported, came east solo on Q32814 who had only 19 cars by Howell at 06:25. Even less cars than the short train on Sunday. Another meet with Q329 at South Lyon again for the third day in a row, who was by Howell at 07:30 with CSX 5364+798 and 53 cars.
