While this may be a bit dated in terms of the original discussion, I wish to chime in.
My travels aboard Amtrak (along with other North American Railroads) has been extensive - all for pleasure with each
long distance route traveled both ways on more than one occasion. One could perhaps refer to me as an addict -
when it comes to train travel, congenial ladies and puppies. Oooooops, I digressed.
Within recent months, I have been discarding much of my professional and personal memorabilia. The dumpster(s)
have been full of all sorts of "stuff" ranging from high school, college, military, police, sports yearbooks, scorecards,
old tax records, useless legal papers, and travel related materials. It is simply amazing just how much "stuff" one
accumulates. I am still mulling over what to do with a few dozen Kodak carousel trays full of 35mm slides! And no
thanx - not interested in digitizing. My mind's eye works quite well, even at 77!
My rationale is quite simple - if I have not looked at it in over a decade, why keep it? I surely do not want my better
half having to deal with "what to do" when the time comes. That is just Moi, folks. So over the side it went . . .
Now to the point of this post: I jettisoned all of my Amtrak schedules from the 1980's to present times - all of it, gone-zo.
I figured if the need should arise, the internet would be my source for whatever I might need.
Guess what? I needed to reaffirm some train schedule dates for photo albums being assembled.
With heartfelt thanks to the creators of The Museum of Railway Timetables, I now have what I need to complete my project.
Irrespective of perhaps not seeing anything beyond 2010, what has been so well organized and user friendly has been a gold
mine of resource for me.
