CN Updates - August 2019

Unread postby Manistique » Thu Aug 01, 2019 6:12 am

Amtrak 354 passed MP 22.5 at 4 am last night, three hours late. Poor Amtrak. An hour late is normal lately. Often two hours. All trains arriving at Pontiac are late lately.

M382 with CN 3831 & 3094 pulling 155 cars was north through New Haven at 10:40. Not sure why, but he was originally given an approach signal at South Haven which caused them to slow down. Not the best planning in my opinion, as a clear signal was given as they were at North Haven.

Track dept. didn’t get out of the way quick enough, reason for change aspect.

Train 371 is NB passing MP 22.5 with a 5600 leading an 8800 at 5:50 pm.

371 held up Amtrak 355 from leaving Pontiac Station or so it seems as it went by around 6 pm, 15 minutes late.

Train 514 is following Amtrak down the Hill at 6:12 pm past MP 22.5 with 5459 and 5446 as power and a few containers.

CN 2299 & 5633 for the power. Past the New Haven depot at 19:42. Looks like 385 will be a late one today as it is not in the siding at Haven.
