Because of mechanical and other issues the Empire Builder 7(9/17) lost 9 plus hours in Montana and is now continuing on beyond Spokane(normal emergency turn around point) and will not arrive Seattle until after 5 PM. That train has to be serviced and turned around to be Empire Builder 8(9/19) which was scheduled to depart 4:40 PM. What is the minimum time needed to service and turn this train around in Seattle? Amtrak has not estimated a departure time as of early this afternoon. I will be boarding this train at East Glacier Park on Friday. I know it will not arrive by the scheduled 9:45 AM but wonder how many hours later the train will arrive and also how late the train will arrive in Chicago on Saturday.
