I show 3(8) on time out of ABQ and 2 1/2 hours late at Needles.

3(7) was worse.  It started out with the AMTK 179 and 29.  The 179 went
SOGR and had to be set out at Albuquerque.  Train ran single unit to
Winslow where BNSF 4540 was added in the lead.  Train wound up
about six hours late into SoCal.

Yeh...daylight over Cajon, either day.

It appears that the diner and at least one coach were missing from the consist. Makeup was the usual 2 power units, baggage, crew dorm, 2 sleepers, 1 observation, and 1 coach.

Doesn't surprise me there, also he's doing the same tactic on the other LD Trains too I bet!

They must have done it several times then since they tripped a couple of detectors.

So we have here, what...seriously disappearing  maintenance of dying locos in Chicago...and moving sabotage?
Hot roller bearings?
I can't wait for the coming Amtrash meals east of the Mississippi !
This would all be hilarious if it wasn't so damned maddening...and dangerous..

Don't give Amtrak another reason to impose Contemporary Dining!
