Before you base too much scheduling on the WCTT, keep in mind that the Coast Starlight has a special place in Amtrak purgatory. In the west Amtrak does not own their own track, instead running on the freight track. They run on Union Pacific track on the west coast and unlike other freight carriers, UP does not give preferential treatment to passenger over their own freight and often has 'slow orders' (speed limits) in place. I think you might be hard pressed to find Acela or anything else in the North-East running as off schedule as the Coast Starlight.
