Three (3) For the month of May, 2007
The California Zephyr, the San Joaquin, and the Sunset Limited!
1. The California Zephyr, Amtrak train #6, proudly waits to depart from the Sacramento train station on April 3, 2007. While timekeeping for the Zephyr (0% endpoint on time since October 1, 2006) has been a major problem, a new schedule has been announced (effective June 13), which is posted on this website above.

2. Amtrak California San Joaquin train #713 with a non-California locomotive in the lead, is at the Hanford station on April 12, 2007. This busy station will soon have a second platform, and several improvements are planned for other stations in the Central Valley.

3. Amtrak train #2, the Sunset Limited, is departing the Ontario, CA, station about 35 minutes late on April 15, 2007. Its next stop is Palm Springs. The train was held at LAUS waiting for a tour group that was stuck in traffic, and traveled to Ontario via the UP’s Alhambra line.
