From All Aboard Yahoo Group.

Capitol Limited 29(24) was delayed nearly five hours at Harpers Ferry
WV account emergency brake application. Crew unable to release
brakes. Problem was a fault on the AMTK 173, trailing unit of three,
which was damaged on Silver Starvation 92(17) in a collision with a
big rig at Patrick SC. It is on its way to Beech Grove shops for
eventual repair.
Recrew will be required prior to normal crew change.

Never looked in this thread before, you guys are quite precise with your times. Anyhow came in here to mention that the Lakeshore headed East was just cancelled for around September 15-17 at least due to CSX trackwork Albany > Boston.

Hi all, I'm currently riding the southbound Vermonter, train 57. I boarded in Bridgeport, where the train was supposed to depart at 5:01 but was about 80 minutes late. The 6:01 Regional and the 5:13 Metro-North to Grand Central both stopped at the station before my train finally showed up. I have two questions:
1. Does anyone know why the train was so late? I'm guessing Metro-North could have delayed it a bit after missing its slot, but what caused them to miss the slot in the first place?
2. Just after passing Southport station, we came to a stop on the southbound express track because a northbound Regional needed to pass us. But the northbound train passed us on the northernmost track (track 3)! That's the GCT-bound local track. Does anyone know why Metro-North dispatchers would send a northbound train through on what would typically be an almost entirely southbound track?

Also, now we're stopped at Stamford on Track 2 (northbound express)! Very odd.
