a...coke..fix..... right... clearly meant the pop here i hope :P :D ^_^

YEAH, I could wrap one end around someting on the train, unwinding it and wrapping the other end around my waist while in the short stop stations, getting a coke.

Speaking of coke, I hope that you like Pepsi, because Amtrak has an exclusive contract with Pepsi. You won't find any Coke products on board, unless you've brought them with you.

That's why you have get off at the short stops - to get your fix! :lol: :lol:

rrdude requested I post it here, so here it is:

If traveling in coach, pack a small jar of vicks or other mentholatum rub and apply a dab under your nose if your coach neighbors do not practice the same hygiene habits that you are accustomed to. Also works for those who bring onboard their own malodorous foods.
