This morning, I checked the Amtrak status map and noticed that the Southwest Chief was running quite late and would be in Topeka around 8:40.
Based on that, I decided to try and catch the train before I went in to work (I currently work in Topeka)
I made it to a good spot along the Shunga Trail and waited. At 8:35, I noticed that the ETA was now getting closer to 8:50. I gave my coworkers a heads up to say I’d be a few minutes late (ETA no later than 9:15)
