Train 371 NB past MP 22.5 at 5:15 pm with a BNSF leading a CSX. Whose railroad is this again?

Train 515 returning to Pontiac NB past MP 22.5 at 6:35 pm. It had and SD40 so probably either IC 6200 or GT 5930.

Amtrak 350 went past MP 22.5 4.5 hours late at 7:10 pm. That will make 355 like 6 hours late leaving Pontiac. Oopps. This seems to be the norm lately. I note that Amtrak 352 is pretty close to being on time tonight.

Amtrak 355 left Pontiac for Chicago last night right before Amtrak 352 arrived, around 8:30, around three hours late. Amtrak 354 arrived at Pontiac at 3:41 am, two hours and 45 minutes late. Yikes, what is going on with Amtrak? They used to run very late before the Michigan Line was upgraded by the state, like anytime it rained. Then the last year or two they were like clockwork on time. And now suddenly this winter even worse than before. Someone blamed it on poor maintenance of the aging locomotives lately. Winter cannot always be the reason and we have had a mild winter so far.

M383 is in emergency at South Mount. Been blocking several city crossings since 10:45 - lots of police around and some news choppers. Not sure what happened just yet...

The atcs shows the control point on the mt Clemens sub as beck, s mount, n mount, s haven, n haven. South from beck goes to Milwaukee junction so I'm guessing somewhere in Detroit?

South Mount is the south switch of the CTC controlled siding in Mount Clemens - 20 miles north of Detroit. M383 is now underway - apparently they clipped a propane truck somewhere near North Mount and didn't get stopped until well south of the GTW depot.

Train is 270, cars put away at cory, lined for straight track movement. Power light to flint 1215.

Thanks for the update man o war, I'm not familiar with that territory so I was just trying to give a rough idea. Good to hear everyone is ok and no major issues.
