Amtrak Guest Rewards - Misleading times listed in amtrak.com trip search?
Dec 1, 11, 8:41 pm
I'm a little confused by the timing and duration of the first segment given in an amtrak.com search for CLE-NOL:
Isn't something wrong here?
Yes, something is wrong there. I just did the same search -- but everything looks fine. (?) It returns 8:45AM/9:45AM arrival times into Chicago (both the LSL and Capitol Ltd arrive in the AM, not the evening).
You're traveling from the Eastern to the Central Standard Time Zone, that's why. So you gain an extra hour when you arrive in Chicago, and must set your watch back one hour.
The AM/PM arrival time is wrong. Leaving CLE at 2:59am for a 6h46m journey to CHI would get in at 8:45 AM, not PM, as the schedule states.
