Is my train on time?
Maybe… To see if you train is on time you can use the train status tool and just click on a specific train and take a look on the left side. You will see the stations and the estimated delay or if your Amtrak train will be early. As a first indication if your Amtrak train is on time you can refer to the color codes on the map.
