11:54 A.M.-Southbound Amtrak Ann Rutledge Train #303
Title:  11:54 A.M.-Southbound Amtrak Ann Rutledge Train #303
Description:  Here's another Bolt-O-Nose unit, the new grade crossing damage repair trend, pulling in on the Ann Rutledge from Chicago at 11:54, 44 minutes late of it's scheduled arrival of 11:10. Two women and a small kid were at the Amshack...one sent the kid to their house with another friend after something right after I told them that the train was less than 5 minutes out (the Texas Eagle took Athol Siding). So, her kid is gone and she couldn't board the train...dumbass. Whe asked if the train could wait the conductor said, "Are you kiddin' lady? We're already late!"
