Amtrak 350 was a few minutes late into Pontiac today. It had a single locomotive and four coaches with the buffer baggage car on the rear again.

Train 515 returned to Pontiac following behind Amtrak 350 with a large cut of covered coiled steel cars from the Conrail interchange in Detroit again.

Are those steel cars for the GM Pontiac stamping plant?

Whatever the issue, it sounds like it might be a while as L533S has just run around their train in Mount Clemens and are heading back to Port Huron. I guess any intermodal they have for Moterm will either be stashed in PH to wait it out, or be sent via the Flint and Holly. If that's the case, maybe a few reroutes ? - perhaps 385, 384 and 533 outbound I/M.

Locomotive IC 6200 is drifting SB lite past MP 22.5 at 4:38 pm. I wonder if maybe it was 515 that derailed at 8 Mile on the Mount Clemens Sub (there is a big group of industries just north of there they switch) and 6200 and crew are going to help out or bring back their train? Just guessing. Vivid imagination. Stay tuned.

A late running 371 NB past MP 22.5 at 6:10 pm with six locomotives: Two CN's leading two BNSF, an NS and a UP.

What I presume is an early 391 NB past MP 22.5 at 7:30 pm with what looked like one locomotive. Or maybe it a reroute from the Mount Clemens sub?
