The westbound California Zephyr out of Chicago today has the private dome car Sierra Hotel on the end.  I caught this Amtrak #5 running slowly near Agency, Iowa.  You can hear the engineer say they have a freight train in front of them after they call the signal.  That train had been stopped to let an eastbound train crossover from the westbound track to the eastbound track in Ottumwa.

Sierra Hotel is returning to Chicago today on Amtrak #6(30).  As the train came through Agency, the engineer gave a wave and what sounds like "Shave and a Haircut" at the start of the video.
