And I thought my Amtrak trip was interesting
I thought my time of the California Zephyr was interesting, (see here, here, and here) but thankfully it was not nearly as interesting what happened to these passengers. The train was in western Nebraska at 8:00 am, so it was really, really behind schedule--the story said it hit an abandoned car near Salt Lake City. (Looking at the Amtrak Status map, there is only one five train on the map and it is almost 17 hours late. Two fives and two sixes are not on the map but on the bottom, with service disruptions. So all the Zephyr schedules are completely messed up.)
