Amtrak 5 / 6

What is the status of EB 6 and WB 5.   Amtrak tracker shows them way off the BN line from Denver to Lincoln.

Detour due to high water. Going via the Sandhill sub. Rare mileage for sure.

According to my sources in Alliance NE, #5 passe thru Alliance at about 8:30am, # 6 was earlier.  #5 is somewhere in NE Colorado by now and #6 is near Grand Island!

That is quite the detour.  Kind of wish I was riding 6 to get the rare mileage.  How would 6 get from Denver to Alliance?  I am assume it went up to the UP route in Cheyenne and then worked east.  Or was it an all BNSF routing?

It would go to Sterling on the Brush Subdivision, then north on the Angora Subdivision,all BNSF.

Is tonight’s train also doing this detour? I’m supposed to be on the train from Chicago to Denver tomorrow. An 8 hour delay would not be great…

Nope. It looks like the detour has ended.

Flooding on the BN seems to happen every spring.
