Amtrak seems to be running again on the south Holly and the Michigan Line. Train 351 left Pontiac on time this morning (and hasn't returned).

Two SB's on the Holly late last night around 1 am, one after the other. Maybe the first one was that 116 that was reported earlier (running a bit early too). The second felt like a sand train from the house rattling as it went by.

Wb manifest by 205 with a trio of ges at 0919. Leader has a fouled horn. The sound of leaking air was almost as loud as the sad sounding horn. It almost looks like a 116...just the head end was mixed and the rest stacks. Maybe they're 149 being filled out with general freight. Not an astonishingly long train
