What a nice comment. Like you, I have been pleasantly surprised by the knowledgeable and friendly folks who make up the vast majority of the group. I really enjoyed meeting people at the Seattle Gathering last year, and am looking forward to this year's conclave in PHL, and the mini-gathering in PDX in August. So let me second your thanks to everyone here.

Age is just be one factor that provides variety among people. Attitude is another and
being honest and forthright are others. It is my opinion that our Johnny has all of them!!
It is a real treat for all of us to have members like Johnny and Charlie who contribute their
comments and opinions for the good of train travel and for the enjoyent of all members.
Thank You guys for being an important part of AU.

Thanks for the thanks! AU is great because of the knowledge of all members, be they young, middle aged or older (i had to add the "er" before i get in trouble). And also be they new, regular or over-experienced riders. AU I think has the greatest mix of members, if one asks a question, it is almost a certainty that someone will have an answer.
Like last night, there was a question about the NDL station. Now I'm not bragging, but I know it well, even though the SWC stops there at 1AM and 2 AM. That used to be my "home station" for 7 years. And I was not the only one to provide an answer either.
I think we all learn from each other here on AU!
A training I will go ... !
