I noticed the baggage car. For most of the fall it had instead a second snack/business section car as the "buffer."

Amtrak 351 was about an hour and a half late leaving Pontiac this morning for some reason, passing MP 22.5 just south of the depot there at 7:20 am instead of 5:56 am.

Axle count car.
CN requires 24 axles on the Wolverine trains.
CN requires 30 axles on the Blue Water trains. Because Amtrak has no 6 axle rolling stock in passenger use, it really is 32 axles.

Amtrak 353 was running with a P42 on each end 7 cars in between. Ran restricted speed CP28 to signal 30. Looking like 350 is holding at Miller to meet the late 353.

I caught Amtrak train #353 today in Albion (an hour late). It looks like someone decided to "tag" or graffiti the side of Amtrak horizon car #54512. I wonder if this happened in Pontiac?

352 has a service disruption. It is scheduled on time into NBU, but there's nothing after that. Anybody know what's up?

350 has had a former express baggage car in phase IV the last two days. Hopefully it is back to stay as a buffer car.
