  1. I caught the Puget Sound heading back east on the end of Amtrak #6(19) this morning in Agency, Iowa.

    156 will be arriving at Chicago later today leading Amtrak #6(13). It was just over an hour late at Agency, Iowa.
  3. Yesterday evening, I caught Amtrak #5(14) running on time at Agency, Iowa with a private dome car on the end. It looked like the Puget Sound.
  4. Northern Sky is returning to Chicago today on the end of Amtrak #6(10). The train had a friendly engineer at Agency.

    156 is going for another round on the Zephyr leading Amtrak #5(10). I caught it at Agency, Iowa running on the left track to pass the stopped train visible at the start.

    AMTK 156 is leading Amtrak #6(07) to Chicago today. It was twenty-four minutes late at Agency, Iowa. Also, something I didn't notice when this California Zephyr went west is that the fourth sleeping car is the Edward L. Ullman.
  7. This evening, I caught Amtrak #5(07) as it passed Agency, Iowa with the dome car Northern Sky on the end.

    AMTK 156 is heading back west leading Amtrak #5(04). Near the start of the video you can hear over the radio the dispatcher mention a broken-down freight train on the east side of Ottumwa, Iowa. The Zephyr lost time waiting at the crossover at Beckwith waiting for an eastbound train to clear so it could run left-handed on the eastbound track to Ottumwa. It was close to an hour late at Agency.

    156 is heading back west on Amtrak #5(28), although it's now leading. This westbound California Zephyr would have met #6(26) just east of Agency, Iowa.
  12. So that would have had 1 Trans-Dorm, three sleepers, and two coaches? I thought coaches usually outnumber the sleepers... Yes. You can see them at 4:34. And in case anyone likes more details, the full consist is: Amtrak 78 GE P42DC Amtrak 11 GE P42DC 61018 baggage car 39016 transition dormitory car 32003 Edward L. Ullman sleeping car 32064 sleeping car 32027 sleeping car 38016 dining car 33033 sightseer lounge 34075 coach 31015 baggage-coach
