    PRR GG1 and riding the rails to "see the USA in your Chev".....Train
  1. Aloha While they replaced my beloved G, they did not last as long.
  2. Aloha I never worry about the room because beside sleeping or meal reservations I spend my time in the lounge.
  3. I know of two, one from Hawaii, one from Nevada. So there is hope. Aloha

    Mention of Coast Starlight on Big Bang Theory

    They do provide a lot of RR Scenery to the movie industry. And my friends may consider them their back lot. Aloha

    Mention of Coast Starlight on Big Bang Theory

    Aloha When this came up before, I checked with friends, and the seemed to think that the car in that episode was the studio stock rail car with removable side to assist with camera/lighting placement.
  6. Aloha Been a while, but the last time I did the written test in Honolulu, I was marked wrong on one question. The question asked what should you do if you approached a RR Crossing and could see the train. Their "correct" answer was you should stop then proceed. DUH!

    75th Birthday!

    So why didn't you have a birthday concert in our new arena? Aloha
  8. Aloha I am a side sleeper also, but found the opposite to be right for me. I much prefer the roomette and the side to side rock, much like I am sure may cradle was over a half century ago the the bedroom rock plus as the train started (in lower bunk) I rolled out of bed.

    Booking on Amtrak is now easier

    IDK (I don't know). Problem your a computer geek Blue. I get why the truck driver does not get it. However you should of. Yes, I'm a computer person, but it was a guess on my part because I never used those terms before. And I do know that a lot of people would not have any clue and it would have been nice if the person who used those terms would have given a simple explanation. So many have gone to using acronyms for texting that they forget not all know them. Many are also industry specif. I can say I am well aware from way back in high school (1958 or so) where I used the term "Broad" ( which is the name of a wide beam light) in front of a non-theater teacher that went ballistic. Thankfully the school theater teacher was able to explain it to her so I did not get sent to the principal's office for discipline. Aloha

    Buffer Cars

    Aloha There is a list of car order when Hazardis material is in a train. So long ago I took a class about this. There are even rules that apply to the location of Live stock in a train
  11. I am a stagehand,the moon rises where I set it Aloha
  12. Aloha Hope you get to visit Madison Square Garden as as an arena it is on a scale that is impressive. Remember it was built over a working train station and the arena floor is, as best I remember on the 6th floor of the building. the crews and facilities are so good the can go from Ice to basketball to a concert in a day.
