Talk about the worst delays! 92 Silver Star expected to be eight hours late to BAL. 3:53pm arrival time, now expected to arrive at midnight.
I ride the (MTA Maryland) Penn Line (between Odenton and Baltimore). I used to work for MTA Maryland's IT department, and out of professional courtesy my responses may be limited. Wikimapia is wonderful (for track/interlocking locations)!

CSX "allowed" a motorist to leave his/her motor vehicle on the track near Kissimee and train 92 ran into it.

B. #22 (14th) eastbound Texas Eagle on the 15th AM Ar. STL 31" early and Dp. 55" late?

That track is no longer CSX owned. Belongs to the FL DOT for SunRail. That intersection of road and RR is under construction for the double tracking of the single track for Sun Rail extension to Poinciana road from Sand Lake. Just speculation but maybe the construction may have had something to do with it. Cannot check crossing closing but maybe driver tried to cross over closed crossing and got stuck ? Sun rail extension set to open sometimes in middle 2018 .
