L301-05 @ 13:40:25 westward Bangor’s Center St crossing mp CG60.35 cam with CSX engine #8052 & 8 cars (5 Coil cars + 3 CH). He has work at Hartford mp CG68.7

L303-05 @ 14:08 performed is job briefing with the Dispatcher & is ready to depart. The radio call was all static & another call was stepping on the transmission as well (though the Dispatcher had received all of the info). No idea what engines he has & how many cars.

Assuming he may have CSX engines #3165 + #5460 today. Will know when he is to copy his EC1 at or near Alto mp CH134.3 Note: in the scanner archives, was able to hear he does have CSX engine #3165 leading.

L302-05 by Howell at 16:05. Only 59 cars. Not many seeing there was no L302 yesterday. 5406+5209+6965 on the head end. 6965 was a new split apart for me from its former road slug 2365, May get set off at Lansing seeing L305-05 was running with single unit 4228 again today. L305 running back west from Howell directly behind L302 with 40 cars.

M326-05 @ 16:17 eastward mp CG114.9 CSX engines #5247 + #867. Many thanks to K1NGxBONDx007 for being trackside & reporting :)

L303-05 @ 16:18 eastward reported by the DD mp CH104.3 Mulliken, Mi with 384 axles & 5,465 feet long. CSX engines #3165 + #5460 & 93 cars. He has 10 cars to set off & 25 cars to pick up in Lansing.

As of 17:02, the St Joseph Bridge Tender can't get a "lock down" on the bridge which has E800-05, L301-05 & M326-05 all at stop. Adding to the mix, the Great Lakes Freighter Manitowoc is also being held up for his departure to head out onto Lake Michigan.

At 17:15, all trains are still at stop & the bridge is being opened to let the Great Lakes Freighter Manitowoc pass thru (Tender still couldn't get a lock down indication for the trains).
