There is only one train per day that comes from California. The rest 
either start in Eugene OR or Portland, and they tend to be on time. 
The key is to make sure you are signed up to take the "Amtrak 
Cascades" trains and avoid the "Coast Starlight".  Actually, the Coast 
Starlight is frequently slow/delayed in the southbound direction as well.
