Capital Limited and Lake Shore Limited with Amtrak NPCU 90225 on point pass

Amtrak #49 and #29 were rerouted through Michigan after a derailment in Waterloo, IN on 3/26/2010 when 30 loaded coal cars ended up blocking both tracks.
That is sure neat to see. Are cabbages regular power on the Lake Shore Limited? I thought it was just P42s. I'll be traveling heavily by said train in a couple months, between Rochester, NY & NYC. ~15 hours on the train ovcr 2.5 days!
The NPCU (cabbages)ITCS train control was put on point as is required to run the 66 miles of high speed line west of Kalamazoo, MI. They use them here in a push pull configuration.
