Due to the Swanton derailment, 29/30 and 48/49 are both showing service disruptions.

350 is currently at Dowagiac, arriving there one hour late. It is being led solely by 4630 and there is a Northeast Regional-branded Amfleet I cafe car directly behind the engine.

Seems to be a slow order west of Dearborn, I'm waiting for #353 at Ann Arbor, and it hasn't exceeded 16mph since leaving Dearborn, they just keep pushing back the departure time.

Amtrak 350 just went by MP 22.5 on the Holly at 3:37 pm (an hour late) with a Charger locomotive as its sole power. First Charger powered train into Pontiac. We will see if the Charger that was on view in Pontiac takes 355 back. I bet it does as 353 had a locomotive on each end and that Charger might be the only locomotive in Pontiac (and it is facing the right way). It is very quiet compared to the GE's. More like a turbo train with a whine.

No. Caught me by surprise and it is in a ditch behind my house and I might not be able to see it on the Chargers. Can only see the top half of the large numbers on the GE's.

Train 350 had two Chargers today, one on either end. 4630 and 4612 again. I could tell before I saw them as no GE "thumping" working up the Hill, just a whine. By the way, they are two hours late today just passing my house south of Pontiac right now at 4:21 pm.

Something happened to #350 between Michigan City and New Buffalo. They lost an hour. Can't find any reports.

Same two Chargers on 350 today, arriving about an hour late into Pontiac, bumping into CN Train 371's block on the Holly Subdivision.
