- Baltimore. MD
Well, here it is on Thursday, beautiful sunny day in Seattle, where I'm killing time before I board the Empire Builder for home. It's 1 pm, I'm sitting in a terrace at the Pike Place market overlooking the Sound, and I get both a text and a phone call from Amtrak. Apparently, the Builder is late leaving its originating station before I even get to the station. The phone call said something about "late equipment." Sounds like 7 came in a bit late. Our 1755 train is now scheduled for 1830. Oh well, every trip on amtrak is an adventure, but they're still projecting an early arrival into Chicago on Saturday.
