As posted wlsewhere it may be lack of the required replacemets of some of the V-2 baggage cars. The andatory 5 year brake overhaul may e a choke point. Maybe lack of spare parts.

Was just on the advisories site. Any mention of the Capitol Limited and Southwest Chief baggage has been removed from the advisory as of today. It now just reads that checked baggage is suspended on the Carolinian and Pennsylvanian. Unsure of what this means or if they posted something in error (either the original posting or this updated posting)...worth continuing to watch for sure.

If that is still true, that means the 2 Superliner trains will not have this problem. Maybe somebody forgot there is such as thing as 31xxx Superliner coaches with a secure baggage room when they originally wrote it and only looked at where VL-II baggage car lines were being withdrawn.

Of course Amtrak Express remains "temporarily" suspended since Sep 15, 2020 to prepare for tri-weekly operation.
