I believe X383 terminates at CSX Stanley Yard in Toledo like M383. The power might come back on 382 within the next 24 hours.

:?: These are good units on train 383! I'm hoping these same locos head back north on the Mt. Clemens Sub. tomorrow, 5-31!!!! Can anyone find out? :?:
I didn't catch the locos returning from "X383" Sunday (CN C40-8M #2403 and CN C40-8 #2127)! Who knows where those engines went?

At 5:20 pm today a light Amtrak locomotive drifted south past MP 22.5 on the Holly. I wasn't home to see if Amtrak 350 arrived at Pontiac today but my guess is no, it didn't, and the light locomotive, probably the one they keep at Pontiac for 350's return trip as 355, is either rescuing it or going to wherever it is so that 355 has a locomotive pointing the correct way for the westward trip to Chicago.

8895 and 2105 elephant style leading train 391 NB past MP 22.5 at 8:22 pm.

I'm not sure if you, or any of the other guys here know about this link but it's awesome for tracking Amtrak's

Anyways, it appears that both 350 and 355 had service disruptions in Ann Arbor, anyone have details?

Returning Train 515 with 4929 NB past MP 22.5 returning to Pontiac at 6:15 pm.

Amtrak 355 just past MP 22.5 out of Pontiac 40 minutes late. It arrived as 350 late with only one locomotive and as I have not seen a second locomotive return to be the spare at Pontiac today my guess is that they had to wye the train at Pontiac.

Amtrak 352 just past MP 22.5 at 8:14 pm, a bit late. It had a second unit on the rear which I presume will be the spare unit in Pontiac for the 350/355 dance.

What I presume was 502 SB past MP 22.5 at 8:45 pm.
