The westbound Sunset Limited (#1) originates in New Orleans at 9:00am.

However, for as back as I can see, for train #1 operations, on asm.transitdocs.com, it shows an arrival of #1 into New Orleans at 6:25am. Anyone know what's happening?

This is the most recent one.

Unrelatedly, #1 left SAS an hour early at 1:45am to compensate for DST, in a different way than the other trains.


I have ridden Cascades #516 (SEA-STW), Coast Starlight #14 (LAX-SLO), Southwest Chief #4 (LAX-CHI), Cardinal #50 (CHI-NYP), Northeast Regional #85 (NYP-WAS), Capitol Limited #30 (HFY-WAS), Coast Starlight #14 (LAX-PDX), Coast Starlight #11 (SLO-LAX), and many Pacific Surfliners with Amtrak. I have observed, including the previous, California Zephyr #5 at SAC (lucky), what I guess to be Crescent #19 (at WAS) and Silver Meteor #97 (at WAS), Empire Builder #28 at PDX, and Sunset Limited #2/Texas Eagle #422 at LAX. I have also ridden the Hokutosei in Japan, Ueno - Sapporo (now discontinued).

Prior to Hurricane Katrina, 1 originated in ORL. It hasn't run east of NOL since.  However, the train is not canceled. The service is merely  "suspended until further notice."  As such, you are seeing the scheduled arrival time from ORL, which wasn't removed.

They say laughter is the best medicine. Obviously they never posted on AU.

"Temporarily suspended" for 12 years.

Ah, thanks. I knew about the Sunset Limited east of NOL... but I never expected it to still 'show up' on the schedule! The political hurdles that exist to get this service back (in any form) is frustrating.

The LA (west) bound #1 arrives on schedule at Union Station at the crack of dawn, usually even earlier. The east bound #2 is nearly always at least 2 hours late at night into New Orleans. Too bad it can't be the other way around. Go figure.
