This is the southbound Coast Starlight (train #11 behind 115 and 507, with three Sleeping cars and four Coaches) refueling at the Sacramento Valley Rail Station on January 6, 2004, having arrived over six hours late. Winter storms in the West have created havoc with the Starlight and California Zephyr timekeeping. On the same day, westbound #5 arrived here at 4 AM, over 13 hours late. Coincidentally it was the same trainset that derailed with #5 at Snowshed 10 in the Sierra on New Years Day.
