Hi, I don't have that info. Unfortunately at this time, the CSX Channel 14 radio (Grand Rapids Area Short Lines) has been off line to Broadcastify where that info is given.

D705 getting yarding instructions from Rouge Tower for Wyoming. Q327 approaching Waverly with a clear signal and lead loco problems limiting them to 20mph. Two engineers discussed the symptoms on the radio and one suggested the cab signals might be turned on on lead loco 594. Sure enough, when they passed me at Waverly the outboard cab signal lamp was illuminated on the side of the cab. P371 clear mp66. D702 switching the east end of Waverly Yard.

Q327-09 @ 10:55 called by Dispatch & will hold them at Benton Harbor to let Q326 & N800 go by. Per the Dispatcher, both of those trains have crews that are really getting short of on-duty time.
