G87514, grain load from Grand Ledge by Howell at 10:42 with CSX 5349+3003 and 92 cars. This was the empty that went west back on Feb. 4th and only took 16 days to load. The two units on this train were two of the four that Q329 sat off at Lansing last Saturday that needed re-fueling.

Q326-20 @ 11:09am was reported clear of the St Joseph Bridge with CSX engine #335 leading, which was paired up with CSX engine #92 on yesterday's Q327.
Correction: #335 is paired up with #8831 & those were the 2 engines also on yesterday's Q327.

Grand Rapids east end, west end, and West Olive crew pools and extra boards are being combined into 1 singular pool and 1 extra board. Many people are not qualified in both directions or DPU qualified, its going to be a mess for a while.
