U301-06 (extra L301) @ 10:47 heard talking to Rouge Tower to start building their train in Grand Rapids.
U301-06 should have 6+ loaded gondola cars with large limestone boulders for the WMI that came in on M326-05
U301-06 @ 13:12 advised the Dispatcher they have a car with a broken knuckle & mechanism & cannot replace the knuckle. No job briefing as been made as of yet for his consist. Sounds like they're doing yarding work inside the Grand Rapids Terminal, not known if they plan to venture westward.

Today's I-150 went up the Lincoln Secondary, 6 August 2022. I actually was close enough to make out the details, for once! He got to the Inkster Road crossing at 12.44, and was headed by BN 8155 and CSX 3339. Fair amount of container loads and stacks. Cleared at 12.45.

L303-06 by Howell at 17:20 with 75 cars. Yesterday, when reporting 6965 on L302-05, I suggested in may be set off in Lansing, but apparently it was not causing confusion. Today, 6965 was again reported on L303 today, but was not on it at Howell, so it apparently got set off in Lansing today as I suggested it might yesterday.

Heard a horn near East Paris in GR about 5 mins ago. Gonna guess U301 has finally made town.
This is my life. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

If this is a problem get used to it.
