Amtrak Updates April 2017

Amtrak 370, 30, and 354 have all been stopped at CP 507 for a few hours. P370 just got to move a block forward, now all stopped a 506 on track 1. They *should* all be on the move in the next 10 minutes, 1 more westbound freight to get by on the single track.

By the way, I hear that 370 has AMTK 42 trailing tonight.

22:00 ET - P370 clear 506, track 1E.
