N800-19 @ 03:55:41am eastward Bangor mp CG60.7 with BNSF engines #8570 + #5671 & 130 loaded coal cars. He got his DP power at Wells mp CG43.3 & continued on to West Olive.

Good morning Donnie. I can't believe they're attempting to run Amtrak P371-20 this morning with the #4612 from last night after they had broken down several times even right after they had departed Bangor last night. His final resting place was mp CG40 & D803-19 had to tow P370 with its passengers to Grand Rapids.
From other updates, Amtrak P371 may have departed Grand Rapids this morning without passengers & wanted to get this train back to Chicago. Amtrak is running without passengers this morning.

IDTX 4631 laading 370 departing St Joe 2136

Great, let's send the one that died at Saugatuck back out. They spent several days on 4612 (died on Hiawatha previously) and it went kaput on day 2. Wtf is Amtrak doing? Get an MDOT P42 on there and get the charger situation figured out. Smh

D705-19 arriving at Lansing at 22:30

Sounds like this train worked at Ensel and then they parked it west of the Lansing airport.

23 hours later as D905-19 they departed westbound from MP 94 about 21:35.

I did not get the number, but it sounds like they picked up a 3rd engine from Ensel. 738 in the lead, 3211 DPU
