Amtrak 355 just went past MP 22.5 an hour late with a new Charger locomotive trailing the lead Genesis one. Maybe the one that has been sitting at Pontiac depot for the past week?

The symbol for the grain train was G899.

Train 515 followed Amtrak 353 down the Hill just now at 10:15 am with SD60 5449 as power today.

Cowl CN 2407 is leading another CN on Train 371 passing MP 22.5 NB at 2:22 pm.

Train 391 with cowl CN 2401 trailing another CN just went NB past NP 22.5 with a short train. Second zebra-striped cowl by the house today.

I wonder if they sometimes combine 371 and 391 at Pontiac when one is short?
