The Pere Marquette is a 3-car all-Horizon consist today. While in prior years they have usually run with Horizons in the summer (usually 4) and Superliners in the winter, this year has been almost exclusively Superliners year-round. NPCU and SC44 for power, as usual.

It went back that night on 355. When the brass or inspection stuff comes it normally goes 350-355 so it's in Chicago same day. It was an inspection car.

Wolverine trains haven't had rear units for over a year now. Something to do wit lacking ITCS units in the fleet, fuel savings and or changes in motive power philosophy. As for "classic" look.. I would say interesting lol :lol:
