Odd issue with Amtrak 8(15)
Trains 7/27 arrived very late into Seattle/Portland which presumably was the cause of the late departure of 8/28 later the same day (Amtrak Alerts does say this, but they're not exactly reliable). Oddly 8(15) is showing differently on different websites:
- Amtrak shows its location and its next stop, but all previous stops are shown as "estimated" (ie yet to arrive there)
- Transitdocs does not show the train on the map, but typing the link manually brings up the schedule, albeit with all stops showing as "estimated"
- Dixeland shows the train on the map, and previous stops show actual/recorded times, not estimated.
I notice the train left Seattle after midnight so I wonder if that's confused some of the apps? Dixieland is the only one showing what I assume is correct and live data.
Just an observation.
