Quick update, they plan to wye in Pontiac so it'll trail both ways. Tomorrow, since they're gonna be on the CN, I'd expect them to add two more cars to comply with the minimum axle counts on the detectors.

Amtrak F40/NPCU #406 has been on the Pere Marquette the past few days, opposite P42 #27 on the other end. Three Superliners have been standard. 406 was on the East end the past few days, tonight 27 is leading P370 east and I'm not certain if the consist was wyed and 406 is not on the west end of if it's another unit...
