As far as we can determine, only 350 and 355 regularly have Chargers. Each train has a Charger at each end. We have yet to see a Chicago-Pontiac job with only one Charger.

Train 353 is canceled today per the Amtrak website. Anyone know the reason? Summer track repair schedule like in past years?

When I went through Galesburg this morning, the signal was Red for eastbound, and there was a bunch of MOW equipment ion the track in town. They've had rail laying alongside the track for several months.

Last night Amtrak 350 was about four hours late arriving in Pontiac. Per the CN board, it had only one Charger as power so they had to wye it before sending it south as 355 and that took longer than usual because CN Train 514, which was in front of it and that was having locomotive problems, was tying up Pontiac Yard. It left Pontiac as Train 355 after 10 pm.

Train 352 was also very late arriving in Pontiac and it and SB 355 had a rolling meet on the two-tracked CN Holly Sub in Bloomfield Hills at 10:22 pm, an unusual passenger train event out here. 352 arrived in Pontiac about 3 hours late.

Train 350 has not left Pontiac yet this morning, over an hour late now. But at 6:22 am two lite Amtrak P42's running together in reverse went NB past MP 22.5 on the Holly headed to Pontiac.

UPDATE: 351 is passing MP 22.5 at 7:13 am, a bit over an hour late leaving Pontiac.
