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.
