Welcome aboard the best internet forum group for Amtrak and just about any other thing you want to know about railroading.

Enjoy your stay (hope it is a long one) and don't be afraid to ask any questions that you have, if you cannot find the answer in our forum search, or if you want an update of any previous topic.

 

The group also has an annual gathering where you can meet some of us face to face.  This year the gathering is in DC on the weekend beginning Oct. 9th, Hope to see you there!

AKA --not also known as.--Any Navy people out there? It was a ship designation. Lets see if anyone can come up with the answer. My first user name was APA. Got lost in a misfire in the forum some how. Same deal, a ship designation.My member number would be lower if I had not lost the APA. I thought some one might pick up on the letters and make the connection. I guess my shipmates are not train people. http://discuss.amtra...MO_DIR#/sad.gif or none of you guys where my shipmates. You will have to go back a few years to find the APA AKA desingnation. If anyone does find the answer, be kind about my age. http://discuss.amtra...IR#/biggrin.gif http://discuss.amtra...IR#/biggrin.gif http://discuss.amtra...IR#/biggrin.gif Hint Viet Nam http://discuss.amtra...MO_DIR#/sad.gif

Hey, newbie here. Skelly_nbc would be my first initial and last name Kelly, underscore, Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Operations Specialist. Which is what I did for 15 of my 20-year Army career. I retired in 2007 and live in Kansas. Recovering from a divorce which officially ended 3 days prior to our 27th anniversary.
I don't work so I enjoy Riding my 2007 Harley Davidson Road King to live and living to RIDE!
I'm on here because I love taking the train, you get wherever you're headed so much more relaxed. Then have Enterprise rent a car pick you up. Pretty sweet! I think 100% (Service Connected) Disabled should be able to ride system wide for free. But that'll never happen in my lifetime, so we travel as a family of 6 out in the open where the kids and wife cannot sleep. Whereas passengers in the sleep cars don't have said issues...

My two cents,

Sean E. Kelly
Sergeant First Class,
U.S. Army (Retired)

I live in the upper east side of NYC. Shows that when living in the NEC area that I'll choose trains 100% of the time when traveling to Boston or DC than flying. I love flying (travel weekly for work), but the train experience from NYC to DC/Boston is a superior experience (in my opinion)
