    The just announced boarding for sleeper pax from the lounge.  Glad I'm not heading to Chicago this evening.

    I'm interested to hear the reason behind this.

    Amtrak Alerts on Twitter is advising that track issues in the yard outside of WAS are the cause. Departed approx. 3 hrs late.

    That could mean a whole lot of things.

    Well, whatever they were, they didn't seem to affect the Northeast Regional I was riding.

    My guess would be a derailment in the yard....
