Now, there's a guy who knows how to travel!!!
When can I come with you?
There is isn't an infinite amount of space, particularly for items that require refrigeration or freezing. They basically carry items in certain quantities that are based upon history. However, you never know what can occur. You may have a large amount of children on a particular train and they make a run on hot dogs or burgers as an example.
Additionally, there aren't places to restock food at every point on the system. A train departing from Norfolk would have received its main stock the day before in Boston. They can reorder up until WAS. That last reorder must sustain the train until it returns to WAS the next day.
It is entirely believable that a train returning from NFK can run out of an item prior to arriving in WAS since the items may have been depleted the day before. At any rate, there is opportunity to replenish items on that train at WAS and NYP but again, if there is a run on a certain item, it can sell out easily.
Separate names with a comma.
