Re: Ann arbor Railroad

Does AA still interchange Chrysler traffic with NS at Milan? Prior to the pandemic that was a seven day a week operation. It may have changed since.

It has.....since NS went PSR-crazy, that move to Milan went away....back to the "old" way again

Re: Amtrak

If you are referring to 352, it showed arriving into Dearborn and departing at 714pm....which is a few minutes early, but with it's schedule, that is allowed
