St. Louis is a crew change point for the Texas Eagle and a refueling station for the northbound. There could be many reasons for a delay.

The NEC had a trespasser strike south of Seabrook, MD early this morning around 5:15am Eastern. Unusually, even though the person died, they had the trains back running on restricted speed after 30 minutes to keep an eye out for police investigating. I usually think it'll take at least 3 hours shut down. That said, trains took upwards of a 30 minute delay until the afternoon.

Capitol Limited 29(3) is running 1h50m late due to another trespasser strike in Rockville, MD (around Twin Brook WMATA station).

NEC took a hit for two hours as from what I can tell from all available sources was a suspicious package on a train. Tracks are now cleared by police and trains are back on the move.

Amtrak is citing 'host railroad' problems.

Not a good ride for folks on 29(22):
Lost 3 hours west of PGH account vehicle strike
Lost another 3 west of Alliance account mechanical problems.
Lost 2 more west of Sandusky account local power issues.

Currently about 9 hours late and hasn't left Toledo. Hope there was some extra food available!
