It's next stop as I write this is Sudbury Jct., ON.  It's 11 hours, 47 minutes late already on its journey to Vancouver.  Wow!  Anyone have an explanation for this?  I know CN freight traffic usually gets priority, but, the train just started its trip from Toronto.  Did it leave Toronto seriously late?  If so, why?

I was 11 hours late on the SWC back in 2015 and was just 10 hours late on Cardinal 9/15....so not sure how uncommon. 

25000+ miles on Amtrak to So Cal.....

It left Toronto excessively late due to late arriving equipment.
