As so often with Amtrak.  Mechanical.  About four hours lost but that may not be all...Now estimated at Yazoo City, next stop after Jackson, 7 1/2 hours late.

58(15) departed NOL with the AMTK 46.

As usual, one loco on a LD train proves a disaster..........

Maybe Amtrak should start buying gensets.

Aren't there extra P42s around now since many trains are tri-weekly? How about the dozen stored in NOUPT?

9 hrs late now. There will be a meet with 393, possibly near HMW.

Maybe they need to stick to 2 units.

I forgot 393 is on a half hour later schedule. Looks like they will meet at the Peotone siding.

Not precisely, but I think it was a traction motor issue... the bugaboo of dieseldom from its inception to the present day.
