Thanks. I wish Amtrak would post all of the service issues in one place rather than making people look at the website and/or twitter.

On 19, my understanding is it hit a vehicle.

43 (4) held at Harrisburg until 2PM then proceeded to lose another 90 minutes getting to Harrisburg. It's 3:06 late as of this post.
I don't understand why they ran it, since they said all service was suspended.......

Amtrak Vermonter 56 hit a woman on the track near West Baltimore, MD this morning. Woman was taken to the hospital alive. Incident caused the Vermonter to be 1h40m late and backed up NEC traffic in both directions.

Does anyone have data on how often an LD train into Chicago is late enough that passengers miss their connections and have to stay overnight? This would help with the analysis in another thread you may have noticed in this forum. Even better would be the actual or approximate number of people who miss connections in Chicago and have to stay overnight in any given year, or weekly average, or some such. We are mostly guessing at this key fact of the discussion, or estimating it from circumstantial evidence.

MARC 430 broke down in The B&P Tunnel about 30 minutes ago as of this post. Delays are mounting on the NEC.

Texas Eagle 22-19 lost 5 hours because of a disabled freight train south of Joliet. 21-20 lost 8 hours (ending up terminating in Fort Worth and being busituted to the rest the way) and the Lincoln's lost time because of the broken freight and single tracking north of Little Rock.

Does anybody know if eastbound Wolverine #354 (23rd) was really 8' 55" late into Pontiac, and --if so -- why?
