# 5 Wb from Sidney detouring
Author: dan

Flooding near benkleman forced atk to get off the normal path as you probably know, so after I was chasing storms in eastern Colorado The night before I tried to get an hour sleep and I actually got twi goodness I woke up with the help of a passenger on number five  Caught up with it west of julesburg , Thanks David for the updates!     Be sure and turn down the volume due to the wind noise that I left in there this was the first time I had seen Super liners over the Overland since the union pacific chartered them for a junior old timers train 🚂 years ago , interesting both detours had a UP dome for the trip

Did UP allow the Amtrak train to operate at 70 mph?
