Wolverine Way Late Again in Michigan

The evening Wolverine to Detroit (Pontiac) stalled for more than five hours in northern Indiana on Wednesday night due to mechanical problems with the locomotive.

Amtrak spokesman Steve Kulm said the train stopped near Michigan City, Ind., at about 8:30 p.m. and had to wait for a replacement locomotive to be sent from Detroit.

There were 100 passengers aboard train No. 354. The train had power during its wait.

No. 354 finally was able to resume its journey at about 2 a.m.

On Sunday night the same train was delayed for about six hours after the crew discovered a flat spot on a wheel of a coach shortly after the train departed from Chicago.
