Don't have much details but CN will run a OCS train up the MTC Sub. with management on board. Heard it will stay in Port Huron on the 27th and head back to Chicago via Flint.

Our neighboring fire department Springfield Township is reporting a train that's broke down blocking crossings in Davisburg. Ongoing for about 30 minutes from what I've heard.

Amtrak 350/355 had three additional cars on the rear and two locomotives on the front back to back. Two of the three cars were double-decker with the one on the very end a glassed-end observation car. All were Amtrak Equipment. They must have wyed 350 in Pontiac.
