L302-15 by Howell at 19:15, with between 70-80 cars, most for GLC, including a few more towards the rear, plus seven more loads of new ties. Could not read my writing again but looked as if it was 926 on the head end. 2nd unit was 5480 for sure running elephant style. 5480 was a super clean recent repaint, but one I knew had been painted YN3c.

CSX 926 would be correct since this pair was elephant style on Deshler cam, 5480 in a fresh paint with dpu logo on nose

L305-15 developed engine problems going east. It took the train a few hours just to go from Howell to Brighton and back. When going west, a lot of the engine room doors were open on 4017, but still had 8054 working properly.

They did lose the 4017 between Webberville and Howell, but most of the time east of Ann Pere was spent waiting for L303 to pass by so they could head back west.
