Q32927 had CSX 837 leading and SD40-2 8850 trailing when it went by Howell at 09:47. Have not seen 8850 since Dec. 6th, 2006 when it was on a G352 grain load from Webberville with CW40-8 7763. It took the crew on Q329 almost as long as it did yesterday getting across Ann Pere diamond when they went east on Q328. 329 had 125 cars and a good 50 or more tank cars on the rear end. They were picking up more cars at Lansing as well,

Q32827 went east at 05:52 with CSX 740+906 and 56 cars. They got across the diamond with red blocks fairly easy as the RN had blockers and control of the intersection at that time..
