Dwell time at Denver on the California Zephyr #5
Author: wzd

If the westbund Zephyr is running late, is there a minimum dwell time needed at Denver to service the train, etc.?

Hopefully, I will have a chance to run inside and get a look at the new arrangement.

Also, do they wash the windows at Denver, like in the olden days?

I have a trip planned for next month.

Thanks.

Denver is a major station for Amtrak, even with two trains a day.  As I recall from last summer, about 150 folks detrain and board there at train time, and that takes time.  There is also fueling, and that takes about 15 minutes.  So you SHOULD have time to go inside, but do check with crew.
