Coast Line was shut down due to flooding according to UP, but
both Amtrak 11 and 14 are on regular route today:

Severe Winter Weather Continues to Cause Delays in Western Region
Announcement Number: CN2017-3
1-11-2017

To Our Customers,

As severe winter weather continues to impact the Western Region, customers may expect delays in excess of 48 hours for shipments moving across the affected area as well as between Portland south into Northern California.

Service Interruptions
Operations have been suspended between Wallula and Spokane, Washington due to an interruption south of Spokane. We are currently evaluating options to reroute traffic around the affected area; however, customer shipments may experience delays in excess of 48 hours.

Operations continue to remain suspended in the Feather River Canyon near Portola, California and west of Winnemucca, Nevada due to washouts, with some traffic being rerouted around the affected locations. Alternate routes remain open over Donner Pass; however, the route has also been affected by multiple interruptions from snowslides, rockslides and mudslides, with delays of 24-48 hours expected.

Outages due to flooding in the Sacramento Delta and South of San Jose, California along the coast have interrupted through-service and local operations, with alternate routes being utilized in the San Joaquin Valley. We are still recovering our operation from the service interruptions over the Pacific Northwest route in Eastern Oregon, Idaho and Wyoming, which has impacted through-service between Portland and Chicago. Local service for customers around Portland, Hinkle and Pocatello has also been impacted by these service interruptions.

Thank you for your business. Please contact the National Customer Service Center or your Union Pacific representative with any questions.

Is the OP 100% certain it was an Amtrak train?   BNSF's business train is also silver in color.

If Amtrak, could it be the second CA,Zephyr trainset which ended up in Emeryville last week dead-heading east via Tehachapi?

There was BNSF business train southbound this morning over Tehachapi, saw it a Barstow getting ready to head south towards LA around 9am this morning. It was a Jewell crew changing.

Probably it. It was second hand information. I wanted to get the heads up out for the guys in Mojave.
