And by Howell at 0600 sharp with 224+325 and 104 cars. Much larger than the last two 50 plus car trains which tells you they probably did not have as large a Lansing set off as they have had the past two days. Q32917 went west at 08:30. Today with 879+4563 on the head end with 67 cars.

Amtrak P370-18 @ 22:01:37 at Bangor's Division St crossing mp CG60.93 with engine #4601 & 3 SuperLiner cars.
From a radio conversation between the Amtrak P370-18 Engineer & the St Joseph Bridge Tender, they will stop running after tomorrow morning's P371 run to Chicago &​ will not be running again for 2 to 3 weeks. Wondering if the morning train will be just an equipment move for Amtrak to Chicago?
