Report says that 1(13) had two private cars on the rear end, complicating the task of adding the through cars.

A derailment in Luling caused Amtrak to detour from Rosenberg to Sealy, Smithville, and San Marcos.  Arriving at San Antonio at 5:22 am, it did not leave until 8:57.  I don't know why it took 3 and a half hours to add 2 cars that I've seen accomplished in under an hour.
