The westbound "California Zephyr" was running on time this evening when it came through Agency, Iowa.  On the end was the ex-New York Central observation car Dagny Taggart.

When are they ever going to fix that bump/dip in the tracks at that grade crossing. Is there a bad tie there?

I see it every time you make a video at that location.

We can see the engine rise/drop and dust puff out both sides of the tracks at 0:44 into the video.

It looks to be at the east edge of the crossing roadway.
