Texas Eagle delayed departing SAS due to late inbound equipment.

Sunset Limited out of LAX on 5/14 delayed due to weather issues in/around Sanderson, operating 5 hours 15 minutes late.

Thanks, Track-a-Train wasnt showing #2.
Try using asm.transitdocs.com. Sometimes it doesn’t work (it appears to be down as I type this), but it feeds off of Amtrak status maps and is generally a little more reliable

Yeah, I like using track-a-train and it's been weirdly fouled up the past couple days, some routes showing from May 13. The dixielandsoftware site is a little better, even though I know they get their info from Amtrak.

Guess I use the 'train status' on the app to try to keep up with my train for the trip I start later this week

Another late Eagle, it looks like. 22 hasn't left SAS yet. I am watching this closely as I'm supposed to catch it at Mineola, but the complicating factor is it's a 2+ hour for me to get there, and we're supposed to have heavy rain (and there is construction on the route) so I WAS gonna leave early, but now? Shrug. Hard to judge.

I'm assuming it was either delayed equipment or crew that's causing the 2 hour lateness? I'm just hoping it DOES leave at the 9 am time scheduled....

welp, it's three hours late now.....I guess there was "police activity" holding up #1, and they used #1s equipment? That's what the Amtrak twitter claimed...


well, I guess if it's SUPER late I get a to-go order from East Texas Burger Company and wind up missing seeing what the foofaraw about the "Flex Meals" is all about. (I know a lot of y'all hate them but I am trying to go in with an open mind; I've eaten my fair share of college dorm cafeteria food so my standards may be lower)
