Q327-30 is currently going through Coloma. Sounds like CSXT 9018 leading.

Very high CSX and MDOT activity surrounding the Market St Bridge and the Joe Brown spur downtown. Y195 is switching the east end of the yard with 2048, meanwhile 3335 (T4 Gevo) just dropped 6545 off on the fuel pads. Those dash 3s must be really proving their worth! Can't see mech on site.
Also GDLK is coming into Wyoming yard

Seen a high green for a southbound here in downtown Holly and hear horns just to the north. Looks like 5496 on the point with 3130 and 4036.
