Train #364 left Chicago 5 hours late. Yesterday it left 1'26" late and arrived Pt. Huron 4'25" late or 3:56 AM. Even turning the clocks back an hour won't help this train. Anyone know what's up with AMTK Chicago?

Train #350 left Chicago this morning 1'39" late. Something is going at Chicago with power, cars, crews? Yesterday #354 left 5 hours late. MDOT blames most of the usual tardiness on the host railroads. Not the case here.

Is there more track work going on between Dearborn and Ann Arbor? Every westbound train seems to lose 5-15 minutes on this stretch. Or freight interference? The only junction is as Wayne, and the whole point of the needed re-double-tracking in this stretch was the facilitate freight and passenger meets with no delay. So.....what gives?
