(Foreshadoming in the "are you married?" conversation between her & Coulter earlier in the film). Perhaps only she & Coulter are aware of this??
I don't think she remembers the events of the previous day, because this is a different timeline and those events didn't happen for her. In this timeline the train bomb didn't explode and the bomber was caught by an anonymous tip-off. This Goodwin didn't let Colter die; that was a Goodwin from a different timeline.
I suspect Source Code had probably succeeded many times, but each time in a different universe, causing it to not be necessary in the ending universe. (But this supposes the many universes have independent existence.)
At the end of the film, I think it's undeniable that there are two universes, each going their own path. The Goodwin in the original is in hot water for letting Colter die, and she doesn't get the text message explaining what happened. Colter can't text between universes.
