Had a quick Chicago-Detroit roundtrip yesterday (1-25) 350 there and 355 back. Well patronized trains both ways but especially coming back. Arrived in Det 3 min late at 1:43pm, the Q-Line streetcar was just pulling up and I was in the Detroit Insitute of Arts by 2:00pm. Quick tip is you can actually buy a streetcar ticket after you board if you don't have time to use the ticket machine on the platform. The Art museum's permanant collection is great and they have a special Monet exhibit at the moment which was cool. Afterwards I got a Strombolli, some soup, and a glass of wine at the Garden Bowl--Majestic a little further down Woodward before heading back to the station. 355 home had good crowds at Detroit, Dearborn, Ann Arbor and Kalamazoo and arrived 10 minutes early into Chicago at 10:15pm. At Dearborn eastbound 352 was in the station at the same time and used the track farthest from the station. So the trains can make this new quicker schedule but there is very little padding so everything has to go pretty much exactly right until they raise the speeds some more. Still feels much much better than a few years ago. Too bad there isn't an extra frequency or new equipment to go along with it yet.
