Amtrak #6 Service Disruption
Author: 2ebright

The Dixieland site shows #6 of today 25" late at Colfax, CA but not yet arriving at Truckee and in a "Service Disruption". Anybody know details; I suspect weather.

#5 also service disruption according to Amtrak website.   My phone app still estimates a 5:41 arrival time for Colfax but nothing after that.

I have been monitoring the radio traffic and a freight train reported significant water flowing over track 2 and  that track 1 was starting to go under water.
Probably other major weather related issues.

Major precipitation in Northern California today.  Cooler heads may have decided it's better
NOT to run Amtrak over The Hill yet.

#5 coming into Salt Lake City tonight 1/8. Have the buses been called to take passengers from Reno to Emeryville and vice versa I guess (so #5 turns at Reno to become #6).

I heard the BNSF Brush Dispatcher (east of Denver) tonight say #6 is anulled because of flooding in Nevada... I don't have any other details.
