Not any more! I am a railfan and it almost always comes blasting through Glendale within five minutes plus or minus of 8:30. It has like a 95% on time record.

Love Amtrak, haven't had a chance to ride it lately, but I always brought my own food, and was the envy of fellow passengers. Bring a cooler.
