So who got 5 million for repairs to track so you can earn 300k a year running a train?

Ya! Good luck.

That's like talk of privatizing Amtrak.


1963U. S. Congress - underground trolley system • Disneyland train (1968/various other dates) • Old Tucson steam train (1969)

Amtrak: California Zephyr Coast Starlight •  Southwest ChiefSunset LimitedTexas Eagle • Illinois Zephyr

. . . . . . . Amtrak miles - 16,383, so far.

Yeah. There is that....I hope things aren't as bad as some of the forums are making out. I was able to ride their train from NOL-CHI a couple years ago. Was fantastic, probably as close as I'll ever come to riding the Super Chief! Class act. Best trip I've ever had. Now with no real diner on the CONO either, I just fly when I go that way. (heard the food may improve soon, but even then, it will only improve to current Amtrak standard....) Really would like to see IPH succeed. Would love another Pullman long distance trip someday!
