97 had hit a car in Ft Laurderdale and arrived MIA at 10:46 pm (3 hr 47 min LT).
98 did not get out till 3 pm the next afternoon (6'50" LT)
Something must have failed mechanically.

What failed is Amtrak.  They are SO SO poorly managed.  They unable to adjust to any problem.  They are unable to repair their cars or locomotives.  PATHETIC.

Maybe they didn't have a rested crew and it wasn't a mechanical failure?

So a three hour delay southbound results in a seven hour delay northbound the next day? Only on Amtrak could something this stupid happen. And it’s not because they washed the train at Miami either, they are running back-and-forth filthy. Can we please bring back Seaboard Coast Line that knew how to run a Northeast to Florida passenger service properly! Plus they ran about four times as many coaches and sleepers each direction per day. Amtrak can’t even serve one of the highest volume travel markets in the entire United States.
