I understand late trains can happen, but how can the www site times be so wrong???

https://tickets.amtrak.com/itd/amtrak

My wife was visiting our daughter in KC MO, she's now on the train to Galesburg IL, about a 45 minute drive (vs 5.5 hours to KC).

We've been texting, she left - and will arrive - about 1.5 hours late, but the www still shows on time. Late happens, but FIX THE WWW SITE!!

They are probably using the Tracking Service from the USPS.

Honestly, I'm convinced it's be design.

I flew on New Year's Day. My outgoing flight from Roswell NM was listed as on time, after it was scheduled to leave, with the prior incoming flight (the one that was supposed to be outgoing) listed as over an hour late.

This was only one part of my travel debacle that day. Don't get me started......

I am just glad that the airline pilots and train engineers get up to date information.
Air traffic control and directing the complex rail system are kind of important.

My wife used Amtrak into Boston at times and they had a on;line status map that was accurate to a few minutes.
