CN is broken down blocking Barry and Shoeman Roads just east of Haslett, Fire Department has been sent out, Amtrak is still in East Lansing

Edit to add: problem has been fixed it was A451 and the train split, should be back underway shortly, and they don't have work at Cory

Sounds like they got it moving. 364 was told to head east about 2320. I heard amtrak talking on the train and they made it sound like an issue with losing their air. The train crew talking to desk 8 said something about the 2nd unit shutting down.

Trout Lake about a dozen or so pulp wood flat cars scattered around the yard, a few box and tank cars and what looked like a short string of wood chip hoppers. No engines.
