    Hi, all. I’m booked on 92 from Tampa to NYC on Monday. Because of the storm, 91 down from NY has already been canceled Saturday-Tuesday ...  but AMTRAK still has 92 booked to run all the way up on Monday.

    So here’s my confusion: How can amtrak already have decided to cancel the Southbound train departing Tuesday (arriving Wednesday) ... but as of now still tell passengers the Northbound service is running on Monday? Doesn’t seem to make sense, even though I’d love it to be accurate.

    thanks, Rob

    Short answer is your train may or may not be running.  Not the first time Amtrak communication skills were faulty.

    Possibly due to positioning of the consists. Since 92 is only running to JAX today.

    Indeed according to Arrow 92 will operate MIA-NYP tomorrow, Monday 12/10 while 91 is still canceled NYP-JAX. Not sure why. I had heard 91 was operating normal tomorrow and that was later corrected.
