Unread post by Jochs »

Not an Amtrak train, but the NS grain train headed for Decatur on the Amtrak Michigan Line went through Dowagiac at 1:52am, should be around Twin Lakes right now. 2 NS SD60s, a CN and BNSF unit in the middle of the consist.

Train 351 was a half-hour late departing Pontiac this morning. Maybe something to do with the delay at Lawton last night?

Amtrak 355 on the West Side of Ann Arbor, running 29 minutes late. Horn was clogged with snow, the K5LA almost sounded like an RS3L.
