Just after 12pm, the dispatcher was talking to N800-31 with BNSF engine #9108 in Grand Junction regarding Q326 being stalled out on Saugatuck Hill. Heard D801 is on its way to rescue Q326.
D801, if it has Eng 5774, is still NB on the siding at Grand Junction as of 12:45pm, Nov 02. I see no crew on board. I suspect it was Q326 I saw go north thru Fennville at 11:10am, sans pusher. He was flying, but there has been a steady rain, so traction not so great.

Heard D801-2 with CSX #3116 reporting from Holland mp CG25.3 at 12:50pm heading to Q326. CSX #3461 may be paired up with #3116 (the usual pusher engines).
D801-2 is now very close to Q326 at 13:11.

Q329 with the CSX #997 reported by the DD at mp CH104.3 @ 11:27 with 240 axles. Typical axle math works out for 2 engines & 57 cars. Could he have picked up another engine since Howell?

Q329 was reported by the DD at mp CH126.3 with 238 axles @ 12:05pm that works out to be 1 engine & 58 cars. May have been a +2 axle count error on the DD at mp CH104.3 which I've heard before on other DD's once in a while.

As of Friday/Saturday there was a CN SD70M-2 waiting to be picked up at Ensel, 329 today could’ve grabbed it.
