Double ended Wolverine Trains

Unread postby Ypsi » Thu Aug 02, 2018 7:38 pm

Over the last two days I've noted 350/355 and 352 with two P42's, one on each end of the train. Did they get enough ITCS units back to do this again? Or did the motive power philosophy change? Or did I happen to catch protect units being changed from PNT multiple days in a row?

It is neither of those....Two units on train due to wye at Pontiac yard OOS due to wide gauge. Repairs are complete as I heard today and should be back to normal operation.

On my way home from volumteering on the MTM train, Mt. Clemens tonight I swing by the Pontiac Amtrak depot and saw a Amtrak engine parked at that depot until goes on Amtrak train 353 tomorrow morning Therefore its back to normal operation.
