CSX track work for the next ?2? weeks. The trains will run on some days during this time.

It's the right time of year for the North End Sub track work. Tends to be every year at this time. I wouldn't be surprised if 79/80 also are impacted. This is something that is annual.

You'd think they could at least run it to Virginia. Or not have obvious typos in the service alert. Or post it after the cancellations started.

I'm so done with this customer service.

It was announced prior to the actual date of the trackwork. I'm not sure I understand your rant there?

The announcement is currently displayed on Amtrak's website on the Service Alerts and Notices page, under Passenger Advisories. However, it was not posted there until after the cancellations had already started.

Indeed I was a bit irritated by this day before yesterday, when I had to go for a wild hunt around the forest to find any mention of this temporary service suspension on specific days of the week. I remembered that I had seen an announcement a while back, but I failed to find it anywhere on the Amtrak site until they got around to posting it quite a bit after the suspension began.

There is no denying that the Amtrak service for providing service change information is a bit of a hit or miss these days.
