Train 822 was over 3 hours late into OKC on its Sunday 12/31 run. The Amtrak app tracking status for yesterday and today say "Service Disruption." Anyone know what's causing it? Hope to take 822 back to school next weekend.

I took 822 on the 31th. We stopped for about an hour on the halfway mark between GLE and FTW due to "track issues." Conductor said something about having someone come out to look at the track.

We were also late leaving FTW due to a stopped BNSF train.

All appears to have been resolved. 821 was canceled 1/1-1/3—it left OKC late 1/1 but was canceled before NOR. 822 was canceled 1/1 and 1/2, and before that was over 3 hours late on 12/31 (thanks randomguy65 for the firsthand account). 822 ran modestly late yesterday, 1/3, and 821 has been making good time today, 1/4. Must have been a track issue or freight derailment.
