Amtrak 350 flies through a blizzard at 100mph

Train (Transit Vehicle Type)+amtrakBlizzard (Disaster Type)+linus+snowplow+snowstorm+highspeed

Chicago and Northwest Indiana region were a hit with a historic snowstorm on February 1st, 2015, with snowfall totals of over 16 inches.  

Because 350 was an hour late, I had to scramble to get over to the Michigan line northeast of Porter, IN. I wanted to get far enough away from Porter Junction to try and catch the train at upwards of 100mph.

This video shows the first train of the day on Amtrak's Michigan line, where ITCS signalling allows operation of 110mph speeds. The snow began the night before, and had piled over the rails and crossings before 350 came through at or close to 100mph and knocked it all away. The location is a bit northeast of Porter, Indiana. 

The second train is Amtrak 49, the Lake Shore Limited, running at restricted speed behind a hot NS intermodal in Chesterton Indiana.

Blizzard? Where is there a blizzard? Train is moving pretty good, though.

Blizzard ? Really ? That looks like your average snow storm. The blizzard of 1888 killed over 400 people , how many died in this storm ?

I work S+C up in Canada, and I'm curious as to what ITCS stands for. It's not an acronym we use up here.
Edit: Never mind, lol. Figured it out myself. For anybody else wondering, it's a type of Positive Train Control wherein the train will slow and stop itself when it picks up an unpermisive signal off the coded track circuits. also GPS and lots of other sofistomocated gizmos.

That second one is more what I expect from Amtrak speeds. Not that the first is amazing... it's just better than what I expect.

How does he know when to blow the horn in white out conditions? Just keep your finger on the button I guess.

It's so beautiful. I wonder if the Acelas will bump to 180 on revenue runs (i.e. Stand behind the yellow line, behind the platform, and a few rows back in the parking lot)
