Empire Builder Amtrak 7
Author: wirelessenabled

Is the Empire Builder #7 really terminating in Spokane these days or is that just a data problem?  The first day dixielandsoftware showed #7 terminating in Spokane I looked on Amtrak and the train had continued to Seattle.

What is the real story?

Train 8 of 5/21 is showing station stops from Spokane East only. It should have left Seattle on 5/20, but stations not shown. 
Train 7 of 5/20 from Chicago is showing stations to Everett 
Train 28 that left Portland today, 5/21, is showing normal stations of Portland to Spokane, but there's no compliment number 8 from Seattle to Spokane......

So whatever is happening with the western terminus of the Empire Builder seems to have been going on since May 20th?

They are sending in horizon cars to temporarily replace the S6 talgos until the new S8 talgos are finished.  Three came in on sunday, three more today, and another six at another point in time.

From the15th to the 25 or something close to that 7/8 will be turning in Spokane because of trackwork on the scenic sub. 27/28 is still going to Portland. They have been turning the Seattle section on the Y at Marshall in the morning around 9/10am.
