Amtrak 354 passed MP 22.5 at 4 am last night, three hours late. Poor Amtrak. An hour late is normal lately. Often two hours. All trains arriving at Pontiac are late lately.

M382 with CN 3831 & 3094 pulling 155 cars was north through New Haven at 10:40. Not sure why, but he was originally given an approach signal at South Haven which caused them to slow down. Not the best planning in my opinion, as a clear signal was given as they were at North Haven.

Train 371 is NB passing MP 22.5 with a 5600 leading an 8800 at 5:50 pm.

371 held up Amtrak 355 from leaving Pontiac Station or so it seems as it went by around 6 pm, 15 minutes late.

Train 514 is following Amtrak down the Hill at 6:12 pm past MP 22.5 with 5459 and 5446 as power and a few containers.

CN 2299 & 5633 for the power. Past the New Haven depot at 19:42. Looks like 385 will be a late one today as it is not in the siding at Haven.
