On the cancelled days, the Amtrak website does give LAX-FTW routing via the SW Chief to Newton, then thruway bus to Heartland Flyer OKC-FTW.
It's actually faster than train #422, but boy, if you miss the connecting bus at Newton, you are in for a very long day on Greyhound to Dallas!

Rumor has it that the train has a new name: the Sunset Extremely Limited.

The bus making connections from the Southwest chief is guaranteed.  It waits regardless, being paid for by Amtrak.

Not sure Greyhound even has a schedule from Newton south.
