Day 2 – Washington DC

We started out early today going to breakfast at 6:30. For the first time on any of our Amtrak trips, they did not have French Toast! So we had to settle for pancakes. They were okay, but we like the French Toast better.

So far, the train is running about 1.5 hours behind schedule. We have a 3 hour layover in Chicago so we should be good for making our connection.

Stephen was not quite ready to get up this morning.

Stephen and I hung in the louge car for a bit before lunch.

We had our last meal on this train until our return trip.

We got to step off the train one last time at Fort Madison.

We then just chilled until our train arrived into Chicago.

We arrived into Chicago only about 30 minutes late. That is pretty good since at times we were running as much as two hours behind.

Around 5:45 we were told our train would be leaving later than scheduled. We boarded the Capitol Limited around 7:00pm.

We went to dinner around 8:00 where we all had steak. While eating, we lost an hour because we left Illinois and entered Indiana.

Soon after dinner, we all settled in for a good nights sleep. Until tomorrow.
