Amtrak 11
 
does anybody know what detoured route the starlight will take to avoid the mudslide? and will train 14 still use the normal route?
thanks in advance...

What mudslide? #11 is already running over Tehachapi, #14 via Coast. The mudslide was last week, dude.

When 11 or 14 detour over the Tehachapi Loop, they don't stop at Oakland, it's to far out of the way.

They follow the route of the Sacramento bound San Joaquin's so no Oakland, Emeryville, or Martinez.

If you've ever done it, I recommend taking the trip one day they detour it.

This time is different, #14 isn't detouring. 11 is, its running via Oakland then over Altamont Pass, wying at Lathrop then heading South on the UP Fresno Subdivision.
