Maybe a BNSF unit on an inbound or outbound coal train? Just a guess. Not sure where you are located to be hearing it.

Bob. Do you have a list of the grain trains this year for Webberville and Grand Ledge by chance?

Q327-01 @ 10:43:00am westward Bangor's Center St crossing mp CG60.35 with CSXT engines #377 + #80 & 137 cars. Meeting Q326 at Riverside mp CG80.1 & Q326 has the same CN engines #2866 + #3211 that were on yesterday's Q327.
Sounds like Q326 is having issues with his EOT and Q327 might be assisting him with a reset when they meet up.

That wouldn't be hard to compile if you go thru the boards since January, would be a bit tedious though.
I'd be happy to do it once the semester's over, gotta finish these last couple days tho.

[quoteBob. Do you have a list of the grain trains this year for Webberville and Grand Ledge by chance? [/quote]

While Amesssman suggests going through all four month of the Train Locations to find out, it was far faster to look at my daily log sheets. Beside that, I do not post all trains I see when others near by post the same train info seen only miles away from me.

1-06-21: V71302 to Webberville returned as G71308 but departed with a recrew as G90708 on the 8th
1-24-21: V764 to Webberville, returned as G76425 on the 26th
1-29-21: V71427 to Grand Ledge, returned as G71423 on Feb, 24th
1-31-21: V713 to Webberville, returned as G713 on Feb 4th ?
2-13-21: V47711 to Webberville returned as G76415, but left with a recrew as G097 on the 20th.
3-04-21: V81002 to Webberville returned as G76404 on the 5th
3-25-21: V76422 to Webberville returned as G76427 on the 27th
3-26-21: V86826 to Webberville returned as G86829 on the 29th
4-16-21: V76414 to Webberville returned as G76418 on the 18th
