Should have been Q32925 with CSX 3212 single unit with 74 cars. By Howell at 08:28. Has at least 30 or more cars to pick up at Lansing but may not get them all due to tonnage unless they grab one of the two units from D708. Q32825 went east at 05:35 with CSX 929+3217 and 94 cars.

Q32926 by Howell at 09:02 with CSX 5295+8873 and 134 cars. Picking up a lot more at Lansing onto the rear of their train. At Howell, there was a long string of TILX two bay hopper cars on the rear end probably going to storage somewhere. Yesterday, Q329 had some more TILX coal cars that may go for storage as well. There was a whole unit train of these several weeks ago for storage. SW of GRP. Q32826 went east at 05:29 with CSX 9051+861 and 67 cars.
