Amtrak 351 went by my house for the first time in two days this morning. My alarm clock is back. All is well with the world, again.

Train 515 looked like a 515 today with plenty of centerbeams full of lumber products. IC SD40-2 6200 was the power today. It went SB past MP 22.5 at 9:57 am, out ahead of what I presume will be Amtrak 353 leaving Pontiac in a minute (unless there isn't any equipment for it yet in Pontiac after the embargo).

And Amtrak 353 is on its way to Detroit and Chicago, on time so far. It had two GE's back to back leading and a baggage car on the rear end today.

A SB 280'ish looking train with some head end mixed and the rest autoracks SB past MP 22.5 at 12:15 pm with two BNSF units.

Train 116 was SB past MP 22.5 at 5:30 am. Sounded like only one locomotive. Amtrak 351 was right behind him.

Amtrak 353 SB past MP 22.5 at 10:08 am, on time. It is a nice looking train today with back to back Genesis locomotives and the baggage car right behind them this morning followed by the coaches.

The GTW unit is
GP38-2 #5847 (the one with the 'White Plates' on the nose)! I was there yesterday─but unfortunately went toward Church street when 533 started going!!!! We quickly turned around and only got the "PTC Test" train out the car window on Hubbard!!!! :evil: Man, I have never seen a "Rolling Meet" at Mt. Clemens!!!! I should have stayed on Cass!!!! Hopefully this train will come back today!!!!
