Train 514 was NB past MP 22.5 at 9:20 pm with 156 "wells" about half being empty. Longest shuttle train yet. The SB one was just a few cars, as usual.

Not sure if the dispatcher was being facetious or serious but after Amtrak passed someone called for track authority to do some kind of work in the potterville/Charlotte area and was told it would b a while. 2 west bound following Amtrak and SIX east bound after that. The dispatcher sounded annoyed so tough to read. They joke on the radio a lot but that doesnt seem to be something they would joke about. 0915

Amtrak 350 went NB past MP 22.5 at 3:15pm, about an hour late, crawling by my house. Must be a slow order as there was a track crew around South Boulevard in Pontiac this morning that must still be there. Maybe they are fixing whatever it is that restricts Amtrak to 40 mph back here?

And at 3:27 pm NB returning 515 also just crawled by returning to Pontiac.
