350 did have damage to the unit today, missing the beginners side ditchlights and had some obvious nose damage

On Saturday, March 18, 2017 Amtrak train #350/355 had AMTK 1159 baggage car on the train. This is ex-ATSF 3650 built in 1953. If this runs like it has all winter this car may be on this train for at least a week. Worth checking out.

Now looking back at the windows of the car in my video (shot in the dark), it looks like it was one of the new baggage cars on 355 on March 17th. Must have gotten switched out once it got to Chicago later that night.

Edit - Looking back on 2 times ago when I saw 355 in New Buffalo, it had a new baggage car as well. This was on February 17th.
