No. 2 will depart San Antonio at its scheduled time of 6:25 a.m.

The temporary schedule has the Sunset leaving Los Angeles at 8 p.m. and arriving in San Antonio at 2:50 a.m.

The schedule change is due to track work being performed by Union Pacific.

In a service advisory, Amtrak said the schedule change will not affect Nos. 2/422 on March 12.

The earlier operation means that there will be no connection at Los Angeles for passengers arriving on the Coast Starlight from Seattle.

Coast Starlight connecting passengers will be directed to disembark at Sacramento, California, and board a bus to Los Angeles.

Pacific Surfliner and San Joaquin customers who will not make their connection to Train 2/422 can contact Amtrak for train service options.
