P370-20 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like IDTX 4602 leading again.

Q329 reported by the DD at mp CH126.3 @ 13:05 with 588 axles & 8,647 feet long. Typical axle math (for 4 axle cars) with 2 engines works out to 144 cars.

The increase in cars over what was seen in Howell works out about right with D708 having around 30 cars back to Lansing yesterday for 329 pickup.

Yes, I was also thinking the same, that Q329 must have made a pickup along the way.
