Is there a way that a mod can pin this board to the top of the Amtrak Rail Discussion board. I like referencing this regularly but often find it hard to locate. I feel it is more helpful than some of the other pinned boards.

Amtrak: Pacific Surfliner (100000000000), Southwest Chief (5), California Zephyr (1), Coast Starlight (6), Capitol Corridor (1), Empire Builder (2), Acela Express (1), LSL (1), NE Regional (2)
Non-Amtrak: NCTD Coaster (at least 20), Metrolink (4), SD Trolley (at least 20), LACMTA Red Line (at least 50), Seattle Streetcar (1), Chicago 'L' (probably 13), NYC Subway (probably 15), WMATA Mass Transit (probably 20), LIRR (1), Las Vegas Monorail (at least 12), MBTA Mass Transit (16), NJ Transit commuter rail (3), I'm sure there are more that I can't think of right now

upcoming Amtrak: Pacific Surfliner (10000000000 more)
upcoming non-Amtrak: Coaster, Red Line/Expo Line in LA, NJ Transit (5-10)

Pretty good for a 16 year old :)

It was moved to this forum for that reason, to make it easier to find. Here it will always be on the front page.
Alan,

Take care and take trains!

So there is no lounge on any section of the LSL, BOS or NYP?
Why does Amtrak have so little sleepers and so many coaches on LDs? Never understood.

I like that new TE/CONO consist. The walk from the sleeper to the lounge and dinner through three coaches was an obstacle course, especially early morning or late night.

I was waiting for #97 at ALX this last Sunday (3/4/12) and #50 arrived - late of course. At the front of the consist was a Horizon BC car in revenue service. I mentioned it to the baggage handler at ALX and he said it has been there since late fall or early winter. Anybody know more about this?

I wish I was a headlight on a northbound of the border train.

That's not true. Baggage handler either didn't now what he was talking about, or didn't understand your question.

It looks like it was an equipment swap on one trip last week, then didn't make it back to CHI because of the storms that caused the consist to be turned in IND to head back to NYP.

Thanks, Trogdor. Something didn't make sense. It was very odd to see the consist with the Horizon BC and I thought it would have been mentioned on AU by now if it had been there any legnth of time.

There is a lounge that operates BOS-ALB-CHI. If you read earlier posts, you'll see that.


Sorry, mistake.

I like how the non-Sunset days have the cars still listed as going to LAX :) We can hope!

Only seven year-round cars? I remember that the TE used to run with more!

Wait a minute! Which train is the EC? It's not a LD, so no sleepers.
