    Empire Builder in need of spare equipment!

    I'm taking the Empire Builder today. Apparently the condition of the train is so bad that it's not even coming all the way to Portland. We have to take a bus from the train station in Portland to Spokane, WA. I just got the message from Amtrak. Is this normal? I haven't taken Amtrak since 2005. What if I miss my connection in Chicago to the east coast? A customer representative for Amtrak said on the phone that they normally put passengers in a hotel room if they miss their Amtrak connection due to extreme lateness. Is this true? I've also read stories online of people being stranded.
