When you say departed, is it actually stopping at stations?

Thanks for confirming! I wasn't sure if I should expect it to just race through the Flint Sub next Wednesday or if it'll be stopping at Durand and the other stations.

19.1 gave P950 an incorrect transmission so they're coming to a brief stop

Ok, mild, wild one at 3:40pm! The 28th St and Chicago Dr (Grandville) NB stoplight goes into blinking red for Chicago Dr traffic and simultaneously the CSX crossing gates go down. This is normal, when a train approaches. So I start to go through the light and, whoa, here come a Fire Chief''s big, red SUV, with light ablaze and sirens wailing! I jump across the intersection and pull over to get out of the way!

I can hear a train blowing and here comes the train, so I pull back across to the parking lot adjacent to the tracks. Just then the Amtrak Charger Train goes by with a "Siemens" marked Loco on the lead, 3 cars behind that (I think 3).

So double action!
