The eastbound California Zephyr is rolling on clear signals about two miles east of Dotsero. The train is running on time as it heads down the Dotsero Cutoff toward Bond. Amtrak is taking advantage of the slow season (ridership is generally down in winter months) and is reducing long distanced trains to just six Superliners. This is allowing them to refurbish some of the cars. Interestingly, while they are doing this, the Lounge Car is being placed directly behind the baggage car. Generally, it is in the middle of the train next to the Dining Car.
