Well, the Blue Water was running ON TIME tonight, and I had nothing else to do, so I grabbed the Camera and Tripod and went over to the Amtrak Station to nab a few pics.

Click on the thumbs for a Larger picture.

I was happily surprised to see an old friend on the train again, Amtrak P42 #32, which was the final Genisis unit on Amtrak's Roster to wear the classic Phase III Paint. She looks pretty good in her new paint, but I still miss the old Phase 3.

The train was about Five cars long IIRC.
For the first time in over a month, the train has a cabbage in the consist. F40 #90219 sits on the rear of the Train:

The train takes off for Durand, Flint, Lapeer, and Port Huron. Right when I took this, I heard someone call out my name. Some other railfans at the station told me the person who did this was the conductor! I wonder how he knew me?

That's all. I hope you enjoyed.

I thought Ian took a job as a station agent. Nice pics Gregg.

It might have been Lee Lovelette. I'll have to post this on the boardhost boards to find out.

Amtrak reversed that move, and he is still a conductor. Thanks everyone for the comments!

Nope. Ian posted on the Shortlines board saying that Lee was working the train that night.
