Should be some of the spine cars from Trowbridge. They’re splitting them apart for two trains to take so they don’t go over the 10,000 ft limit NS has imposed.

hi zack
not a lot to report on, this summer all the movements were fairly close to the
same time every day and the trees and brush is harder to see through also,
have a great week

Just posting since it goes to CSX. CP 7022 (NAVY) is trailing on 235 out of Toronto this morning (should be somewhere around London by now) If any of the Detroit area members would like to see one of these engines

Q327 reported by the DD at mp CG19.1 at approx 18:15 with CSX engines #3187 + #5294 & 73 cars. Dropping off 9 cars in Holland mp CG25.3
Q327 is on the roll again from Holland @ 19:47
N800-24 with BNSF engine #8479 leading cleared the St Joseph Bridge @ 20:15
N800-24 at Bangor mp CG60.7 @ 9:09:17pm with BNSF engines #8479 + 1 & 129 loaded coal cars. (Q327 is waiting in Grand Junction siding mp CG55.6)
Amtrak P370 with engine #4602 & 4 SuperLiner cars at Bangor @ 21:50:33 and is to go into Grand Junction Siding to let Q327 continue west & then he's to back out of Grand Junction at the west end. Then Amtrak had a Medium Approach Medium signal to loop around N800-24 that's on the main between Grand Junction's siding signals. So, it sounds like both Q327 & Amtrak were inside of Grand Junction, Q327 then departed, Amtrak had to back out & then got the signal to go eastward thru Grand Junction to go around N800-24 that was sitting on the main (???).
​Q327 at Bangor mp CG60.7 10:19:33pm with CSX engines #3187 + #5294 & 64 cars.
​DD44.2 reporting N800-24 reported by the DD at mp CG44.2 @ 23:00 Getting D801 pusher engines added at Wells Siding mp CG43.3

q326 appears to be having issues at Wells, or are hooking up some pushers as they've gone by east end wells a couple times this morning.
