Supposedly this is some new business for the Harlem elevator. Supposed to be around 10 cars a week.

Q32807 went east by Howell at 05:30 with five units, the last three picked up at Webberville after the crew arrived to put the grain load together only to find their were not able to be used for this train because of PTC issues. Power was 5337 leading. What should have been 4003 as the second unit may have been 4427 as I believe it was a four axel unit. Trailing three were 4545+5427+132. 56 cars on the train. Remains to be seen what will be used on the grain load when they get another crew for it.

Q32907 went west at 08:15 with 3172+3240 on the head end with 125 cars after having 130 cars yesterday. Another 40 cars of stone loads, or rip rap, after having 61 of them yesterday. Working Lansing as the stone cars are for them. D708 finally made it to Howell last night, sat off 38 cars for GLC in the Howell pass but did not have time to pick up from the transfer. First time in two weeks here for D708. They may have run, but they never made it to Howell.
