Did D705 run?
Earlier, you had posted his crew was supposed to be on duty at 15:00, they're probably still getting their train together in Detroit & may be close to departing there?

D705 has a clear signal out of Plymouth at 1738 EDT. Haven't seen D705 itself yet.

D708 clear Webberville ADM 14>08. Will be dropping off 30 cars to the GLC interchange in Howell before heading back with light power
D708 dropped off 38 cars for GLC, not 30, in the Howell passing siding, not the interchange transfer track. Today marks the 40h day in a row that D708 has run with 4037+8400 for power. Never get tired of seeing 8400 seeing its a former Western Maryland locomotive. Can remember when it first painted Chessie System from the WM circus colors paint.

Must've misheard them on the scanner.
That is some interesting heritage. I always forget just how old the SD40-2s are

hi lego trains
the only time 326/327 and 705/706 wye their power downtown is if they run elephant style.
326 will cut away from their consist, run east to plaster creek, then down the service to the
old east tower/yard office. today 326 had 427 ld and 440 trail, tomorrow 327 will have the 440
lead and the 427 as the trail unit,
most days 705,706 store their power in the mouse. the trail or dpu unit of 705 will become the lead
and the lead power will become the trail or dpu on the next days 706. the only wyes are at the plant,
waverly wye, sunnyside wye, and plymouth, i don't think there's anyway to wye power at delray.

Guess I heard the call wrong. 6:32pm “4538 clear 34 D705 out”

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it to the track because I had to eat dinner. Sounds like someone got a shave and a haircut :D
