As usual, I started out by taking the AATA #1 bus there. As I arrived, I noticed that #352 had just stopped, and there were a large number of passengers both boarding and detraining. I was somewhat surprised at the large number of people boarding to go to points between Dearborn and Pontiac - didn't think people really used Amtrak for such a short distance on the Wolverine. I did notice a sign up on the ticket window saying "Train 352 Eastbound to Dearborn, Detroit, Royal Oak, Birmingham, Pontiac - NOT CHICAGO" (with the latter words in large print). Upon asking, I found out that evidently they've had lots of passengers waiting for #355 get on #352 accidentially because they arrive somewhat close to each other (#352 at 5:45, #355 at 7:17 - though if #352 is delayed as it was today it can be closer).
Should be leaving soon - the website shows a 16 min delay or so.. Will be my first time in a Horizon coach in a while (lately its either been Superliners or BC).
Update: Just boarded (about 25 min late). It seems that I'm in an Amfleet I rather than a Horizon (or at least that's what the safety manual says). Nabbed a front row window seat right behind the large empty space I believe is used for wheelchair seating - no tray table, but you get more legroom than BC for the price of coach (or in this case AGR points). I try for that seat every time now - IMO, it's the best seat in coach...
