They must have ended up with a power glut at McGrew! As far as the dispatcher mentioning where there will be meets, it would just be a courtesy since movement is by signal indication in CTC. However, once we finally got radios in Saginaw we would sometimes notify trains so they could "pace themselves" to the meeting point or lay back in order to stay off road crossings. A meet at Clio would be one example. I can also see more of a necessity with today's monster train lengths.
