Carolinian canceled 10/31?

Nothing at https://www.amtrak.com/routes/caroli...ont-train.html about it, but when I try to book RMT-CLT on 10/31, it says "Canceled."

Any ideas why? Or is it just a glitch with the glitchy new website?

For once it's not the site's fault. https://www.amtrak.com/alert.html is where you need to be checking. There's a pop-up link regarding Carolinian and Piedmont disruptions due to track work.

That said, it would be helpful to have these notices cross-referenced from the route pages.

Actually, those are the same service alerts shown on the page I linked to. The service alert is only through 10/24, and I'm looking to travel a week later, on 10/31. Also, the dates don't line up: the service alert mentions cancellations for #79 on Mondays, but I'm traveling on a Tuesday.

If they extended the trackwork, that's fine, but they should update the service alert accordingly.
