I doubt it, they have a sizeable media crew here in Chelsea. Planning lots of video, including drone footage.

Amtrak 364 didn’t come back last night from Chicago. No sign of 365, obviously, today. Anyone know why?

@AmtrakAlerts
Blue Water Train 364 is canceled due to weather-related equipment problems with no alternate transportation. For reservation assistance, please call 800-USA-RAIL.

No 364 means no 365 this morning

P371 had multiple problems with their single Charger between Grand Rapids and Holland this morning and was not able to keep HEP going for electricity and heat. They dretrained all passengers at Holland station for transfer to motor coach, then the train was pulled ahead to Saugatuck Siding and tied down.
