Just saw the EB Lake Shore go thru Cleveland Collinwood Yard at 800 am. Was at Toledo Union and the Capital and the Lake Shore WB did not leave untill 700 am. What the Frank?? Yet IM train after IM train left on time. (Note Frank as in Mr Sinatra)...My "Theratical Hobo" gets there before the fare paying Amtrak passenger.

Did you check whether the connecting trains from the west were delayed as much - so they may have held the eastern trains to allow passengers to connect?

Could be the delay due to PTC installation

Amtrak runs on a where the host railroad(NS or Csx) has a spot for them.Had that happen to me as we were going to Chicago.I just wonder if any more pizzas have been ordered to the Amtrak station in Bryan since.

stay safe

I figure it was the delay incurred by loading the new and improved "cold meal" options.

When I retired it was CSX policy not to intentionally delay Amtrak.  What it is now is anyone's guess.
