AMTK 184 led #6(01) to Chicago today. This California Zephyr was over five and half hours late when it came through Agency, Iowa. It was reported elsewhere that a Union Pacific locomotive was put on the train in Roseville, California after 184 was shut down due to a possible fuel leak. I think the UP unit was pulled off in Denver.

AMTK 184 had been on Reno Fun Train duty recently, but will now be arriving in Chicago later today on Amtrak #6(26). This eastbound California Zephyr was right on schedule when blew through Agency, Iowa.

184 is leading the eastbound California Zephyr to Chicago today. Amtrak #6(09) was only fifteen minutes late when it came through Agency, Iowa this morning. Also on this train was the sixty-three-year-old heritage baggage car AMTK 1717. This is the first California Zephyr I've seen since October to have a heritage baggage car.

AMTK 184 is now going west on Amtrak #5(12). It's been moved back to be the trailing unit again. Also, there's still a heritage baggage car with the train. This California Zephyr was about four minutes late when it came through Agency, Iowa this evening.

I saw Amtrak #6(02) come through Agency, Iowa this morning about nine minutes late. AMTK 184 was the second engine. This eastbound California Zephyr also happened to have two baggage cars. The first one was an old heritage baggage car, and the second one was a Viewliner II baggage car.

I saw Amtrak #6(02) at the station in Ottumwa, Iowa today with AMTK 184 leading. This eastbound California Zephyr was running nearly two and a half hours late. I'm guessing 184 is leading now because the air conditioning went bad on AMTK 188. I was told that's why its cab door was open in the previous video.

AMTK 184 was just four minutes late leading Amtrak #6(20) this morning. It came through Agency, Iowa on the left track since maintenance work was being done to the other track.

It's not that easy to tell, but I saw 184 heading west again leading Amtrak #5(23). This California Zephyr was over an hour and a half late at Agency, Iowa because of the delay mentioned in this thread. Before the train appears, you can hear some radio chatter that might be from #5's crew.

I swear that engine lives in California. It's the last hero gay unit I need to see. And it comes east one week a year on my trains. And I'm usually out of country that one week. And when I'm working in Chicago it was back east.
