Let's see if they cancel 7 out of Chicago Thanksgiving day on account of not enough time to turn 8 into 7.

If #8/28 can get into Chicago by say 9-10 am, Amtrak should be able to turn it in five hours for a 3:05 pm departure (or thereabouts). Since they know this train is coming in late, Amtrak could try to prepare a substitute train set, OR even take a backup Superliner Sightseer Lounge and Superliner Diner at Chicago, stock it so as to help in the turn of equipment. Those people currently on #8/28 are likely none to happy that they are getting in a day late - on Thanksgiving Day. Any connections to the East Coast or South have been missed.....Amtrak at least provided "on time alternative transportation" to those travelling today from Twin Cities to Chicago.

Now running about 18 hours late. Puts them into Chicago around 11am.
BNSF 5304, Amtrak 314, and Amtrak 72.
Just saw a video of the train, sounds like engine 314 is idling and not powering the train. Trouble with this unit must've occured and they picked up a BNSF leader somewhere. Minot maybe? Was there for two hours.
