Northbound 14 did not arrive until 1;37 PM. So crew had to rest 10 hours under federal law..

My bad luck twice on this trip in Klamath Falls. At least this time I can sleep through this one.

He wouldn't have made it ANYWHERE on Grayhound.

Greyhound is a dubious prospect too.

Precisely! Here's what I-5 looked like just west of where Train 11 sat for a couple hours. There's food, beds and more than one toilet on the train.

I am safe and Sound in a Skeeping Car on the old Western Pacific south of Marysville heading to Sacramento with water everywhere except the railroad tracks running
4 hours, 34 minutes late. out of Chico.

I go with Lurch ALB's comment:  More time on the train, same dollars.  Especially if I have a sleeper which I always would and if there is a Pacific Parlor Car.  However, I am sympathetic to those having travel deadlines having to be places!

No Parlor Car as they have been taken out of service. Still enjoy the ride now we are on the way to Martinez.

We arrived in to LAUPT at 12:36 AM and then got on the Thruway Bus with 4 others and got to Santa Ana at 1:50 AM.
