Just because something was posted on the Internet doesn't mean it's true, but if it is, there was an interesting post over on TrainOrders. "On Saturday, November 20, BNSF, UP and Amtrak put a record number of trains (by BNSF's count) over Cajon Pass - 118. That was 89 BNSF and 26 UP freights and 3 Amtrak movements. Not counted: an unusually high number of helper movements (16). This eclipsed a record of 111 trains set four days earlier." Now the biggest problem with this is that Amtrak only runs two trains a day. So what was the third Amtrak train? There is no mention of this in the BNSF news releases, nor in a news search on Google.
