145 is traveling west right on Amtrak #5(12) as the second engine facing east. I caught this California Zephyr 
passing through Agency, Iowa running one hour late.

145 is returning to Chicago on the California Zephyr today.  It passed by Agency, Iowa running 27 minutes late; not bad for Amtrak #6 here.  This was the last #6 through Donner Pass before Union Pacific closed it for track work.  I'm glad 145 didn't get stuck in California.

AMTK 145 is on Amtrak #5(30) traveling with the Exhibit Train which is to be on display at Denver Union Station this Saturday.  I saw this California Zephyr at Agency, Iowa running about fifteen minutes late.

145 and the Amtrak Exhibit Train are now returning east on Amtrak #6(10) having been on display in Grand Junction, Colorado during the weekend.  This California Zephyr was over four and a half hours late when it passed through Agency, Iowa.

Seems that AMTK 822 and 145 have stuck together since the Gulf Coast special.  Both of them are now taking Amtrak #5(23) westward.  This California Zephyr was running right on time when it came through Agency, Iowa this evening.  145 is the second unit.

AMTK 145 is returning east as the second engine on Amtrak #6(15) after being on Reno Fun Train/Sierra Scenic Train duty.  Although it is not returning with the other engine it was working with, AMTK 822.  With the exception of the baggage car, this train set is the same as the #5 that took 184 west last week, so apparently there are still two anniversary engines out west.

 

The eastbound California Zephyr with 145 was fifty-one minutes late when it came through Agency, Iowa.

HA! Thing is ACSES equipped and where is it?? The midwest and western part of the country where it doesn't exist... But 66 can be captive to the Midwest??

145 led Amtrak #6(06) through Agency, Iowa yesterday.  On the end of the train was a heritage baggage car.  This is the baggage car that was part of the move of the Siemens Chargers from Denver to the test track at Pueblo.

You should be seeing that baggage car again tomorrow plus the four MARC cars.

Amtrak #5(09) is being led west by 145.  It came through Agency about twenty minutes late with a nice salute from the engineer.  There are also three private cars on the end.

I saw Amtrak #6(25) come through Agency, Iowa today running two and a half hours late with AMTK 145 as its second unit.  There were also three private cars on the end of this California Zephyr returning from a National Railway Historical Society convention in Denver.

First time I've seen locomotives running back-to-back on the CZ in a long time. Good catch, Agent!
