    Dome car opportunities

    I don't think anyone is maintaining it. Trainweb apparently lets it sit there for reference. I have a few pictures of domes I donated to the owner of the site in years past, One of them was a dome he had been looking for for many years and it was about 20 miles from where I live. He was quite happy to have those pictures.

    Dome car opportunities

    This LINK will let you see info about essentially all US dome cars ever built. The page creator was an AU member for many years until he passed away a few years back. His great web page continues.
  8. Interesting story. LINK Last paragraph says: If Indiana is truly serious about being a business-friendly state, would like to attract the best and brightest of employees and add significantly to the local and state economy, its businesses would generously benefit from having 21st century passenger trains as an option in travel decisions. In fact, it is my guess that at some point, it could be difficult to get a reservation on one of these trains. The new Iowa Pacific Hoosier State line from Indianapolis to Chicago, via Crawfordsville, Lafayette, Renssalaer and Dyer is often sold out.
  9. That dome/observation car is really nice as you ride through the mountains of northwest and central Indiana!!
  10. Original site killed it as it wasn't supposed to be public info, yet.
  11. I signed up for it and the confirming email came back to me immediately and clicking on the confirm button in the email took me back and said I was signed up. Do you have another email you could try, check your spam folder?
  12. HERE is the actual agreement between INDot and IP.
  13. Please join me in welcoming Jeb R (jebr) as a new Global Moderator. As we continue to grow as the best Amtrak forum in the world, Jeb will assist in keeping things running smoothly. Also, Penny (pennyk) has been moved from Forum Manager to full Administrator. Her assistance has been invaluable on the forum and Bill (PRR 60) and I greatly appreciate her hard work and dedication.

    $.90 CHI-IND Fares!

    They are on Amtrak's web site. Look for dates out in the future, as per the attached. Once they sell out, there are no more for that date.
