Today and Sunday, Amtrak will be running extra trains to and from Chicago into Michigan. Here is a link to the schedules of these trains:

Looks like I may have to go out after work today and catch 373.

I wish they were running it on Friday as well. In years past they ran more than just the two days like this year.

356 just took an approach at CP28 single main to main 2 east. Should be resetting and flipping the train at CP28, then back west to board the 359 trip. Consist is 5 cars bracketed by 2 (very tired looking) P42's.

372/373 was the same consist as 370/371. 4 Superliners, with Chargers on each end: IDTX 4623 and IDTX 4615
This was P373 at 4:47 pm from the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan along Old Lakeshore Drive in St. Joseph.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. Assuming the bluff was stabilized this summer from the lake?
