What if they’re actually sold out though?
You left out timetables.Im the article I posted a few replies up Amtrak admits they have stopped sales. They are “working on“ allowing customers to book trips. It’s the same theme everywhere. “We‘re working on allowing coach customers to eat in diner”, “We’re working on new bedding“, “we’re working on retrofitting diners”, Now it’s we’re working on allowing customers to buy tickets???? Really?
Amtrak does not serve Sacramento International Airport (SMF) even when bridges are intact and ticket sales are open.Eliminating sales on the coastline from LAX-SMF and all points in between during summer peak is insane.
Currently Amtrak allows one to book a ticket from Emeryville to Portland, so they believe that the train will be running on September 11. That is about the most that one can learn, since no one can guess for sure what will actually happen beyond that.Please define “early September” I’m booked on 11 PDX-SAC and really nervous.
Since both UP and BNSF are both heavily impacted by the Siskiyou, Gateway and Feather River lines suffering substantial vegetation fire damage, you can be assured by one thing.Please define “early September” I’m booked on 11 PDX-SAC and really nervous.
I'm booked from Sea-Sac on Sept 12. It's part of a railpass,so if I have to be bustituted it will just be an inconvenience. If I had a sleeper I 'd be a bit annoyedCurrently Amtrak allows one to book a ticket from Emeryville to Portland, so they believe that the train will be running on September 11.

Well I’m holding off officially canceling my trip anyway.UP announced they now expect to have the Dry Canyon Trestle back in service in early August.
While it doesn't mention Amtrak at all, I wouldn't get my hopes up for an early resumption of Amtrak service. I am sure UP would be happy to not have to deal with Amtrak for 5 or 6 weeks while they clear backlogged trains and unscrew their traffic patterns. Since they have an announced date with Amtrak, September 8th, they really have no reason to move that up and every reason not to.
