Last night at 2:45 am a NB extra container train went by MP 22.5 on the Holly. Very slow, very long and a DPU in the middle. First extra container train I have seen in months.

Right behind it was an Amtrak train NB at 2:55 am, if it was 354 it was two hours late, and must have been on the container's block as it too was going slow.

At 5:25 am a SB 116 rolled by my house.

Then as I was waiting for Amtrak 351 to roll by my house this morning around 6 am SB, a NB Amtrak rolls by. Turns out it was 354 running six hours late. The earlier late Amtrak was 352, six hours late.

As soon as 354 arrived in Pontiac, 351 must have left as I heard on go by around 6:15 am. Though it is a two-track main line, Amtrak can only use Main 1 on the Holly as that is the only track that has boarding platforms in Troy. Good idea. So 351 had to wait for 354 to arrive in order to use Main 1.

I also heard but did not see another SB at MP 22.2 at 6:30 am. Busy morning on the Holly south of Pontiac.
