Further, the timing is consistent with the other Wolverines and Amtrak has used #359 on Wolverine "extras" (Labor Day and Thanksgiving Day service) before. It's not a bus.
Yesterday I recieved an email advising of some retimings (Blue Water runs an hour later to Port Huron and departs an hour earlier). What they didn't mention is that train 353 from Pontiac doesn't run , and that there is an "extra" train 359 at 1418 instead. The work is supposed to run from 19th May until 31st August , but Amtrak seem to want to guard the information as if it was a big secret.
My question is , does anybody know if these trains are actually going to be trains or replacement busses? I assume that this is another phase of the Michigan high speed work , but I don't especially want to go all that way on a bus.
