NEC taking a hit today as there are power issues and a broken rail between CARROL NCR and GROVE (Odenton MARC). 15-30 min delays.

Cresent #20 from Atlanta was 7 hours late at Charlotte. What happened?

Edit: Noticed on Thomasville Railcam it only had one loco, usually has two. Must have had engine problems or it hit something.

A vessel struck the Livingston Avenue bridge across the Hudson River between Albany and Rensselaer NY around 9:15 AM this morning. A vessel now appears to be wedged under the bridge. The swing span is open.

At a minimum, I think an inspection will be required to confirm the bridge is safe for rail traffic.

This would affect Amtrak trains operating to/from Chicago, Toronto, Niagara Falls, Montreal and Rutland.

Should not have any affect on service between ALB and NYP.

More on this:

I'm trying to find the video from WNYT I just saw on Facebook of the Captain JP III (I guess the IV will soon be ordered ;-) of the actual strike.

I have NOT yet seen any announcements of service delays, but like jhdeasy suggests, I definitely see service delays coming.

(and I'm hoping they don't extend until Sunday, my son is taking the train back to Buffalo. Though I suppose they'll bridge bus to Schenectady or something.

Ok, just caught a live update, they are "walking" Amtrak trains across the Livingston Avenue Bridge (LAB).

So service is currently OPEN west of ALB.

Cold weather woes??
29/30/48/49 on the 21st hit a disabled Norfolk Southern train in Toledo. 30 got a late start.
48/49 hit the weather as well.
29 on the 22nd hit a switch problem in Pittsburgh and was 2 hours late then.
42 on the 22nd hit a crew delay (probably due to the weather).

You're right. Engine problems north of Atlanta were the cause.

Late turn from 693. The entire Downeaster line hit unscheduled track maintenance between Haverhill (HHL) and Exeter (EXR).
