Any extra cars on Amtrak?

The AAA is predicting record holiday travel this 4th? How 'bout Amtrak - are any extra coaches being run on the MI trains?

I have not counted any extra on the trains in and out of Pontiac this week. The first EB and last WB train, 350/355, using the same train set each day, has been having two snack/business class cars this summer, one on each end, giving it an extra car but not just for the holiday week.

350/355 running with 3 coaches and 1 cafe car. The second cafe car is being used as an axle count car and not open for passenger use. Not much good anyways as it is just a cafe table car (tables on both ends and no business class).
