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.

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!
