Track Work to Disrupt California Zephyr

September 29, 2020

Track work by host railroad Union Pacific on the Moffat Tunnel in Colorado will result in changes to operations of Amtrak’s California Zephyr between Oct. 5 and 12.

In a service advisory, Amtrak said Train 5 will be cancelled during that period with Train 1105 operating in its place between Chicago and Denver.

That train will hold at Denver until 10:05 a.m., 2 hours later than Train 5’s normal schedule and operate on that later schedule at all stations from Denver to Emeryville, California.

Amtrak said that due to the schedule change, on Oct. 6 and 13, there will be no westbound service at Salt Lake City.
