    Amtrak #2, departed 4/15/22

    We made it in at 4:30am today, 6.5 hours late...all the delays in the first half of the journey...so, I knew I would be sleeping on the train pretty early...not fun getting up at 3:30 to get ready for disembarking...then walking 1.6 miles to hotel....no taxis at that hour...

    Amtrak #2, departed 4/15/22

    Pretty uneventful after all the problems the first half of the trip. We are just about to get into Houston at 5:30CT, so currently just under 7 hours late. Unfortunately that probably means getting in around 4am to New Orleans rather that 9:40pm tonight.

    Amtrak #2, departed 4/15/22

    The adventure continues...we have been stopped for 90 minutes about 30 miles east of Tucson...had a crew change (crew timed out) and when they started the train they are having some PTC? issue with alerts they can't get rid of... Now at 8 hours late and sitting still... This week I took the EB...

    Amtrak #2, departed 4/15/22

    We just had an incident at first stop (Maricopa) since our length delay; two guys thrown off train for refusing to wear masks, it wasn't pretty, the guys were irate. Police met them at the station when they got off. It caused another delay and we are leaving Maricopa exactly 6 1/2 hours late.

    Amtrak #2, departed 4/15/22

    yeah, I'm headed to New Orleans but met a guy in the cosmopolitan lounge at LAX who goes to Fort Worth often on Amtrak and he felt that he is probably going to have to take a bus once we get to San Antonio, it has happened to him before.

    Amtrak #2, departed 4/15/22

    I'm currently sitting on the #2 which departed yesterday (4/15). We departed 45 minutes late of the scheduled departure time of 10pm, due to some equipment issue. I awoke at just before 6am and we were/are stopped about 100 miles West of Maricopa. We have been sitting still since I awoke 3...

    Amtrak asks TSA to start screening rail passengers

    This is good, if it is necessary...and we have no idea whether it is...speculating is totally pointless and a waste of time, because 99.99% of us have no idea...if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear...so why have anything negative to say about it? I'm just not into conspiracy...

    Sunset Limited/Texas Eage bridge fires causing service disruptions

    I'm doing SL #2 to New Orleans on 4/15; hope this gets resolved or has a workaround available by then.

For further assistance please call 1-800-USA-RAIL. Sunset Limited Train 2 which is scheduled to depart Los Angeles (LAX) on 4/6 is now cancelled due...

    Amtrak Covid Check-in

    You need a negative test to travel Amtrak? My cross country loop trip (EB, CS, SL, CONO) starts Friday night...nothing on their website about having a negative test, nor have I gotten an email, is this real?

    Difference in Duration of Same Route in Opposite Directions

    So, small thing but something I just noticed. The longer Western Routes are all under an hour difference in duration depending on which direction you are taking it (EB, SWC, SL, CZ). Yet the much shorter trip the Coast Starlight has an hour and a half difference; it is an hour and a half...

    April trip

    Thanks for the answer! That is what I was hoping for; and guessed might be true. I thought maybe 70% of the time there is cell service. I have spent 175 nights at Glacier National Park hiking and tent camping in the last 13 years and there is basically no cell service in the Park.

    April trip

    Only 2 weeks until my big trip! One question: I've been doing my research here and I know that the long distance western routes have basically no Wi-Fi. I recently got my phone plan with Verizon upgraded so that I can use it as a wi-fi hotspot for my laptop (I also already have some...
