D80102 was down at wells a bit earlier, but now seems to be going north towards Tlout. Can you let us know what that train is, just lite power? N80001 loaded coal had issues, setting out a car at Kirk MP71 I believe around 2:30pm, still down there. Crew probably running low on time.

E800-02 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like 9046 leading. They stopped in Benton Harbor for awhile, not sure if was for the problem at North Shore Dr. or a problem with their train.
I thought earlier they said they were E801. There should be an E801-02 coming some time.

P370-02 is currently going through Riverside. Sounds like IDTX 4610 leading.
Q327-02 is currently going through St. Joseph. Sounds like CSXT 587 leading.
Sounds like Q327 will go in at New Buffalo to meet an eastbound loaded coal train.

Q32903 by Howell at 08:50 after flagging Ann Pere diamond with CSX 3090 single unit and 70 cars. D708 brought 29 cars back to Lansing yesterday for pick up if they get them. Always wondered what were in those tall brown fairly new open top cars lettered PMRX cars covered with a black tarp that have been running on Q328 & Q329. Am still baffled after seeing a whitish material right up to the top of the car with the tarp partially dragging over the sides after one of the straps broke on the engineers side. (Already reported to the train)

Q32803 went east at 05:06 with CSX 5294+8833 with 117 cars with the last 50 or more being stone empties. 328 did not clear Ann Pere under nearly 05:40 after flagging the diamond as well with red blocks from both directions.

It may be cotton seed. Michigan gets a fair amount of that stuff for cattle feed. Usually hauled in boxcars though. At least when I've loaded it. Which is a huge pain to unload without losing s bunch of it. Open top cars would be way easier to load, not sure on the unloading side. If there's side doors you'd have the same problem as a boxcar. Not saying that's what it is but it's a possibility

Most of the cotton seed that moves by rail (in West MI, anyway) is moved in those large, open-top gondolas (a lot of them are ex BN, some are brown like BL2 described) with tarps strapped to the top. The ex BN cars have a door on one end that opens. Wyoming Warehouse in Grand Rapids will drive their front end loader into the car, scooping up the cotton seed until its empty.

D708 is currently stopped in Williamston at the 75.2 signal. There is a Hi-Rail truck parked at Zimmer Road. Looks like they are having problems.

15:15, Y121 is setting off two loaded centerbeams at Zeeland Lumber, none to pickup. They also have 2 boxcars and the bay window caboose in their train. Power is CSXT 6460....what happened to its road slug? Other Zeeland sidings are presently empty.
