Sounds like possibly D737 dragging the Grand Rapids cut up to Beck Road.

Wife says reports are that Amtrak derailed in Chicago area. No information at all, if related to any of trains that run to Battle Creek or GR.

Anyone with updates?

Basically #49 the Lake Shore Limited picked a switch at slow speed heading into CUS. No trains to Michigan delayed much if at all. Three cars wound up derailed in the fashion you'd expect if they decided to take a diverging route instead of following the leader. No injuries.

Coming after the NYP derailment, it sounds like Amtrak might wanna break out those gauge bars a bit more frequently! :wink:

WB fairly long train, mostly tanks and box cars from what I saw anyway, around 1:00pm near the Lansing airport today.

P370-27 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like AMTK 59 leading.
