Light power. No work at Elmdale. Probably just pulls at Fox.

P370-04 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like AMTK 138 leading. Also sounds like they're late because they hit a fallen tree west of Stevensville.
I imagine fallen trees blocking the railroad (and highways) will be more commonthis Fall, as the ash trees killed by the Emerald Ash Borers are now rotted enough that any wind will make them fall over. I was walking on the trails at Sarrett Nature Center near Benton Harbor recently, this past Monday, and last Wednesday. Since last week, many trails were blocked by fallen Green Ash trees that were victims of the EAB.
It has also been very windy across the Great Lakes Region these past few days.

P370-04 is currently being held at (East) Saugatuck. It sounds like light engines, D801, struck a pedestrian somewhere east of there.

Sounds like the pedestrian strike was at MP25.2, just west of the depot at Holland.
