There are a few odd spots where passengers are received and discharged where the train may leave early. They are designated with an L on the timetables, and some marked D which are discharge only where the train leaves when ready.
A few questions for a group of 4 first time Amtrak travelers

However, Amtrak will not leave before time in most cases and the exceptions are noted in the timetable(the "D" note for a lot them). But that is for passenger convienence, not operational rule.

But for other LD trains that arrive at a regular station early, THEY WAIT until their published departure time, even if all passengers on the manifest are aboard. Because someone MIGHT show up at the last minute to purchase a ticket on board. I’ve experienced this dozens of times on the CZ, with dwell times at places like Elko being as much as 30 minutes waiting for the departure time printed in the timetable. And all the smokers had already reboarded the train.
