The eastbound California Zephyr that's due to arrive in Chicago later today was delayed for about four hours at McCook, Nebraska last night. There's a report from a passenger that one engine had dynamic brake problems, and a BNSF locomotive was added to the train. Amtrak #6 is currently running just over seven hours late in Iowa.

Here's a video by Thunderbolt1996 Productions showing BNSF 4078 leading the train at Malvern, Iowa.

I don't see how that could be. According to train status #6 left Omaha 13 hours, 4 minutes late. It left McCook 12 hours, 23 minutes late. It apparently lost 10:41 between Fort Morgan and McCook.
