If he hadn't drug a 6 year old thread from the grave, there so way we would have ever known about his love for the Three Rivers!

Jeez, this thread was back before I joined AU.

Of course clicking on that does not work because the URL under it is www.facebook.com/RestartBroadwayLimited/%A0
Edit the post in text mode and fix the URL and it will work.

I rode the Broadway a few times, but took the Three Rivers quite a few times with Heritage sleeper and later the VL sleeper. Most of the time I was going to/from HAR where I had several projects in the area. I lived the Chicago area then, which allowed me to use Amtrak a lot for my weekly business travel. I remember the SCA experiment of changing in Pittsburgh, having all the SCAs for the Three Rivers based there. Once the Three Rivers ended, I did get off in Pittsburgh then drive to the Harrisburg area, linking up with the CL was too difficult, so had to revert back to flying, then the projects finished and I was on the LSL to Rochester, Syracuse, Buffalo, and Albany, sometimes to Boston for several projects in Maine. I did the CL regularly to WAS since corp office was in Reston.
