Combined 5-6 -- seeing double
Author: stash

Stuck in the Sierra per other posts. 6 annulled at Midas and combined with 5 and back to Emeryville.

OS Berkeley at 00:41 Monday. Cool seeing a double Zephyr. 6 was coupled to 5 and pulled back home.

So my curiosity asks: how are passengers on 6 handled? Off at SAC? Put in hotels? Or what else?

Will Train 6 of 1-9 attempt a late start to Chicago if the track is open? Two train sets at Oakland now.

Nothing at Amtrak, no service alert.

In addition to the Zephyr problems, there appears to be an issue on the normal Starlight route since NB #14 just detoured through Roseville.

Roseville is the normal route.

Not for the Coast Starlight.
