Correct on 9649 leading, old green and white BNSF unit. Newer unit trailing. Q327 went by Bangor around 8:30pm. Amtrak p37030 is massively delayed tonight.
As of 9:08pm, d80130 shoving a coal load east up the hill at Saugatuck.
9:14pm - q384 at plaster creek in grand rapids heading towards their train. sounds like q38528 was at Fox in GR about an hour ago but haven't heard from them again.

The Bangor web cam claims 370 is late because Amtrak #8, the Empire Builder from Seattle, was over 4 hours late arriving. Trying to figure out the connection. Are they so short on equipment they were waiting for cars/locomotives from 8? Very strange. Doesn’t help that the Amtrak app is still predicting on time arrivals for 370. At first I assumed the train had left without functional GPS.

Nothing showing on Amtrak Status Maps, but the Amtrak app now says 370 departed Chicago a couple minutes ago. Predicted arrival at St. Joe-Benton Harbor is 11:53 pm.

I waited for them at Breton road in GR for about 30 minutes and they were a no show. I left Judd street even after their E.O.T passed me so I don't know what took them so long getting out of town. Especially if they were only 3,000 ft they really could've highballed.

You might've gotten to Breton just after they went by.

Yes...leaving Judd they will beat you every time (well usually) to Breton...and do it easily. Straight line beats traffic lights and right angle routes with turns.
Enjoy Every Sandwich.

Q326 clear Bangor at 11:55AM according to the Ban-Cam with about 87 mixed and 54 well cars (long count). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGu0cErY01U

Edit: finally clear Zeeland at 1445 with BNSF 5655 leading, the two CSX road units and train, and a BNSF ACe on the tail. I wonder if the CSX leader had s plugged horn or something so they split them up. Beautiful sunny day in the neighborhood! Video upload coming soon.
