Amtrak 353 had three locomotives on it out of Pontiac just now. 58 was leading a Charger on the headend and 63 was on the rear. Not sure what is up other than maybe Charger problem? Two of the three trainsets have been running with six cars instead of the usual five since Christmas.

...and is passing MP 22.5 just south of Pontiac right now at 1:15 pm. Three CN's: 2196, 5745 and one of those older stubby wide-nosed GE's.

Half hour from Milwaukee Junction to here is good time and it wasn't moving that fast.

SB Train 514 went by MP 22.5 right after Amtrak 355 with SD60 5413 and that old, faded CN SD40-2 again (so faded that the number is not visible on the side of the cab) and a few containers.

Three lite locomotives just drifted SB at 6:26 pm. Maybe an extra container train out of Moterm tonight.
