The latest update from our conductor is that the crew on 92(9) timed out, so Amtrak is sending management (his words) south to bring the train to Hamlet so that crew can leave the train, and then a new crew will be taking our train onwards after 92 heads out of Hamlet. His announcement ended with "feel free to call the 800 number to let them know your situation, maybe they'll have more information than we have to give you." It's clearly gonna be a long day, cafe car attendant just make an announcement that she is telling a break because it's been a long, hard day and she doesn't want to get sick (I can only imagine what it's like there). But hey, there is heat and power and cell service and so far, food.
Edit: If nothing else, the onboard crew is doing better than usual updating passengers. On the downside, they don't have much to offer and you can hear their own frustration with that. Still waiting as of 11:28AM for a fresh crew to get 92(9) into Hamlet, then out of the station so we can (hopefully) get moving again.
