SB Eagle of 8th:Why So Late at Joliet ?
Author: mp16

Train departed Chicago on time at 1;45 pm and arrived Joliet 5:07 pm. It is only 37 miles from Chicago to Joliet. Arrived Joliet about 3 hrs. late. Estimated arrival time today at Little Rock about 4 hrs. late. Engine problems ? TIA

They left Chicago on-time and got about 3 miles out before stopping.  Mechanical issues blammed (locomotive?).  They backed-up up accross the river and into the yard where repairs/changes/adjustments were made.  They left the yard right at 3 hours late to resume the southbound run.

It is Chicago maintenance.  Need we say more.
