AMTK 156 is heading west as the second engine on Amtrak #5(22).  This California Zephyr was running on time at Agency, Iowa.

156 is heading back west on Amtrak #5(28), although it's now leading.  This westbound California Zephyr would have met #6(26) just east of Agency, Iowa.

AMTK 156 is heading back west leading Amtrak #5(04).  Near the start of the video you can hear over the radio the dispatcher mention a broken-down freight train on the east side of Ottumwa, Iowa.  The Zephyr lost time waiting at the crossover at Beckwith waiting for an eastbound train to clear so it could run left-handed on the eastbound track to Ottumwa.  It was close to an hour late at Agency.

AMTK 156 is leading Amtrak #6(07) to Chicago today.  It was twenty-four minutes late at Agency, Iowa.  Also, something I didn't notice when this California Zephyr went west is that the fourth sleeping car is the Edward L. Ullman.

156 is going for another round on the Zephyr leading Amtrak #5(10).  I caught it at Agency, Iowa running on the left track to pass the stopped train visible at the start.

156 will be arriving at Chicago later today leading Amtrak #6(13).  It was just over an hour late at Agency, Iowa.
