What's really sad is that based on sunset's average otp offset (lateness) you can go los angeles-chicago-[wash, nyp, or phl]-orl about as quick (or even more quickly) as you can just taking sunset directly. THAT really says volumes about how slow sunset's average trip travel speed must be.

Ahhhh, but you are mistaken! Out here on the railroad (at least in OBS) we tend to "nickname" everything. We sometimes give fellow coworkers nicknames as well as some trains are given nicknames!!! But of course those are not real train names!!! C-mon now, ever job has its little inside amongst the employees fun!!! :D

Yeah, I was avoiding the actual one for Ft. Lauderdale, and a few others due to semi-innapropriate nature.
