I would guess the slug set is for Holland.
D705-04 @ 10:24 westward reported by the DD mp CH126.3 with 392 axles. CSXT engines #530 + #7010 & 95 cars. He may still have the CSXT slug set #6470 + #2239, which would reduce the car count by 2.
@ 11:02 reported from Seymour mp CH148.1

Q326-04 @ 11:04:32 eastward Bangor's Monroe St crossing mp CG60.72 with CSXT engines #80 + #377 & 67 cars.

Holland is mp CG25.3 which puts Q326 about 35 miles from getting there. Don't know what train you're seeing PyrodronProd :?:

Q326-04 @ 11:32 eastward reported by the DD mp CG44.2 with 280 axles & 4,026 ft. CSXT engines #80 + #377 & 67 cars.

21:05- something just whistled eastbound through Zeeland and was lined through to Grandville. D700 making a Grand Rapids run? I believe D702 switched Zeeland Lumber earlier this afternoon.

05:44 CT / 06:44 ET: Sounds like a westbound coal train at Michigan City, based on time of day, horn pattern and horn type.

Nice duet with the alarm clock!
