I see on the Amtrak Location Map (which also shows ViaRail trains) that Train 1 The Canadian is 10 hrs. late about 340km out from Vancouver today (Wed. 4/26/17). I've been following the on-time reliability of #1 lately as I'm taking it in a couple weeks end-to-end.
Lately, timekeeping has improved significantly most days I've checked compared to deep winter but then today's #1 is horribly late. Anyone out there have inside knowledge as to why? I also note that an eastbound #2 was significantly late a few days ago as well, though the exact particulars escape me since I've been focused on #1.
