The Blue Water isn't running either. I would suspect Covid-19 is causing issues with engine and/or train staffing.
It's already caused issues out west with the Zephyr.

And Wolverine 352 out of Chicago isn't running either: Service disruption. So no Amtrak in Michigan today. First time since 1971? First time no passenger train in Michigan ever?

No Amtrak train service at all today between PNT and CHI and PTH and CHI due to the ITCS being down.

Amtrak 351 departed Pontiac on time this morning so things must be fixed on the Michigan Line.

Been a while since I have seen an Amtrak on the Holly, I reside next to the Mount Clemens sub now. I noticed last night when Amtrak 352 came through Royal Oak that it didn't stop in Royal Oak. Since the coronavirus has started, how low has ridership fallen to with the Amtraks?

Lite power consisting of a P42 facing east and a Dash 8 facing west just went east onto the Amtrak Michigan line near Porter. Any idea where that is headed?

Not a specific train update, but Illinois DOT has just taken delivery of their first 4 Amtrak Midwest passenger cars from Siemens. These are the first of the fleet which will over the next 1-2 years be rostered to cover most Midwest services based out of Chicago, bumping Horizon and some Amfleet I equipment to other services or for rebuilding. These match the paint and profile of the new SC-44 Charger locomotives.
