SWC 3 is 5 hours late today (Friday). We were over 6 hours late in Jan 2015 due to locomotive failure outside Chicago. We were then led by a BNSF loco which slowed the entire trip. Will be on SWC 3 in Aug...hope we are not bad late AGAIN.
I hear ya. I'm taking it from LMY to LAX in late July, hoping to catch the 14 CS to SJC. But in a recent nine-day period it missed that connection 4 times.
It's a guaranteed connection for me, and I know there are bustitution ways to get there. I'm checking luggage, I'm a little concerned it won't get to SJC when I do.
