What about the Sunset Limited?

It was due to arrive New Orleans on Sunday.

27 minutes early.  I think the assumption is that if it is not listed, it arrived on time (or early).

Sunset has been doing good with a few exceptions here and there.

AutoTrain 53 is expected into Sanford about 9 hours late today.  In past experience, that will throw off a few days of service until they can work off the accumulated delay.  Even with the usual great turn around, that's too much to overcome.

Today's AutoTrain 52 into Lorton will be about 7 hours late.  Ditto for that.   I'd walk over to the shopping center get a fine burger and a beer, while waiting for 53 to be ready. ten minute walk, plenty of time for that.


(Amtrak will give a box dinner to waiting passengers at Lorton, and probably not open the diner for evening meal service.  Cars are already loaded in an extra set of auto racks and pulled out of the way.  Since the northbound may not be full, the cleaning may be accelerated.  But they're still gonna get out very late.  That's how they handled the situation when my sister traveled a few weeks ago.)
