    5(23) Stopped at Winter Park Resort

    Definitely not the worst place to spend a few hours! We are allowed to get off, but we can’t leave the platform, which isn’t surprising. We’re leaving Winter Park Resort soon to pull into a siding, wait for the freight to clear, back out of the siding, and then pull into Winter Park-Fraser...

    5(23) Stopped at Winter Park Resort

    I’m onboard the Zephyr right now and we are stopped at the Winter Park Resort due to a disabled freight train closer to the Fraser station. The freight train is waiting on a new crew since their time expired. ETA is about 3 hours. Conductor said he’s going to call the resort and Amtrak to see if...

    Possible trip to New Orleans in July

    There is a city bus but it only takes you about half the distance if I remember correctly. You would have to walk the rest. It’s only about half a mile though.

    Silver Star/Silver Meteor combined train (Jan-Mar 2022)

    From what I could tell from my trip on 92 yesterday there was only one attendant for the dining car, but barely anybody actually sat and ate in the dining car. Most people ate in their rooms..

    Silver Star/Silver Meteor combined train (Jan-Mar 2022)

    I’m on the same train and from what I can tell there are at least 3. I haven’t seen 9210 or 9211 but there were attendants standing at the 12, 13, and 14 car when I boarded in Tampa.

    Silver Star/Silver Meteor combined train (Jan-Mar 2022)

    We've only seen one of the new 91 consists, but 9111 was a Viewliner I. 9811, assuming they keep the same previous 97/98 consist when the Silver Meteor restarts, is also a Viewliner I.

    Silver Star/Silver Meteor combined train (Jan-Mar 2022)

    You can call and ask for the 10, 12, or 14 car as it seems those are consistent Viewliner II’s as of right now. Keep in mind you may get an agent who doesn’t know how to switch you without charging the current bucket fare, so you can either ask to talk to a supervisor or call back later and see...

    Silver Star/Silver Meteor combined train (Jan-Mar 2022)

    92 has 4 engines again today. I wonder if they experienced problems only running 2 engines when they first combined the consist Monday and decided to run 91/92 with 4 engines for the time being. Either that or they are moving spare locomotives up north. They are also towing an Amfleet coach...

    Silver Star incident near Lakeland (1/18/22)

    9213 is a Viewliner I painted in the Phase 3 livery if I'm not mistaken. It has a rear window (unlike the VL2's) and no underskirt protecting the car components (at least from what I could tell from the camera)

    Silver Star/Silver Meteor combined train (Jan-Mar 2022)

    The sleepers are not quite in that order but 9214 is still a VL2 (at least today), reference above post

    Amtrak cancellations (Dec. 2021 - 1Q2022)

    The website is the only one that will show only the first segment.

    Amtrak cancellations (Dec. 2021 - 1Q2022)

    I’ve noticed that, for whatever reason, if it’s a multi-segment trip and a portion of it has been canceled, it will only show the first segment of the trip as if it were direct. So here it would be 49 to CHI and 59 to NOL, but instead of showing as “Multiple Segments” like it usually would it...
