Amtrak #6(26) came through Agency, Iowa today with the private varnish Cyrus K. Holliday on the end.  This business car used to be owned by the Soo Line Railroad.  This eastbound California Zephyr was running thirty-eight minutes late.  It had a nice engineer too.

Cyrus K. Holliday is now heading back west on Amtrak #5(29).  This westbound California Zephyr slowly came through Agency, Iowa almost half an hour late on the yellows of a freight train in front of it.  Before this, it left the station in Mount Pleasant two minutes behind schedule.
