Anyone been monitoring the Michigan Line today?

I'm pretty certain I heard 2 trains go thru Dexter in the 12-1pm time frame, one just moments ago. Normally there is only one.

It will be the power for 355 at around 5:20 pm today using 350's trainset. CN local turns the power off of the EB trains overnight at the wye at the north end of Pontiac Yard (where Pontiac Belt Line originates by the old Administration Building) for the morning WB trains with one unit laying over during the day for 350/355. They store the turned or waiting-to-be-turned locomotives at the north end of the depot lead.

CN doesn't do this....an Amtrak crew is called each night to turn the power and do any necessary switching with the consists (like this morning--354 came in needing two cars switched around to be head out....evidently the yard crews in Chi-town are too busy to do this work when the train set is sitting there)
