I have taken advantage of information that this Forum has provided over the past few years, and finally decided to officially join!
I am a 3rd generation railroader and, as you might have guessed from my photo, those roots go back to the Michigan Central/NYC/Penn Central. Currently, I am retired and living in Colorado, so I am no stranger to the CZ, typically leaving from Grand Junction but traveling not only back home but also to the Bay Area.
This September I am looking forward to a coast-to-coast trip on the Capitol Limited and Southwest Chief. My wife and I will be visiting her brothers, who live on alternate sides of the US. I am looking forward to seeing the changes, good and bad, that have happened to the Metropolitan Lounge in CHI. I should be posting about that when the time comes.
I also have a trip report to post on a recent trip from Jackson, MI to Grand Junction, CO. Hopefully that will be up soon!
