N801-07 is currently going through St. Joseph. Sounds like BNSF 9772 leading.

Actually, I heard N801 get an approach medium at CG 74 (Watervliet,) indicating that they were going into Kirk. I also heard the RN mention that N801 will tie down their train at Grand Junction later.
An approach at CG60.7 indicates that Q327 is staying on the main.
So far, as of 9:37 pm, I haven't heard anything of P370, and I haven't heard Q327 yet, either.
10:10 pm edit: N801 leaving Kirk, Q327's radio too weak to hear, but I heard the RN tell them to check their train on the double track, as the defect detectors are picking up 4 extra axles.

P370-07 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like IDTX 4607 leading. My comments about IDTX 4613 last night must have jinxed it.....P370 is running about an hour and 50 min late...probably had problems with IDTX 4613.
This is the first time in several months that something other than 4613 had lead the Pere Marquette.

An extra car was found on Q327 that was supposed to have been dropped off in Holland but was somehow missed in the paperwork. Q327 was advised to continue on to Chicago with that extra car.

Q32808 by Howell at 09:06 with CSX 491+8851 and 103 cars. Last I knew two hours ago, Q32908 had an engine on the ground at Detroit, so don't look for him anytime soon.

Either a D907 or D908 west at Breton in GR just now with CSX 4035 and 4046 and roughly 60 cars of what would have been 329’s Lansing pick up.

Edit: calling signals as D70808.

Q327-09 @ 07:21 was reported by the DD mp CG19.1 with CSX engines #99 + #68 & 109 cars. They're working in Holland today to drop off some cars. These engines were on yesterday's Q326 & the radio calls from the CSX #99 were not very good. This is the 1st day for Q327's new daytime running schedule & started to hear the crew's radio calls while prepping their train inside Grand Rapids around 05:14am & on the move at 06:59am.
