I have a friend traveling from Tacoma to the Bay Area on #11 last night and today. They were stopped at Klamath Falls for a few hours due to a derailment near Dunsmuir, CA. Instead of the normal bus bridge, evidently Amtrak and BNSF are giving the passengers quite a treat. They were waiting for a pilot to take them through the inside gateway to Keddie and down Feather River on the old Western Pacific to Roseville where Starlight will pick up its normal routing. The pax were told they'd leave Klamath around 2am. I know the Zephyr has detoured through Feather River before, I was on one of those in 2008, I've never heard of the Coast Starlight doing it however. What an amazing trip. Even if they're due to be 6-8 hours later into the Bay Area.
