Now that I have time on my hand, I'm thinking of sampling some train rides that I haven't had a chance to do. A Piedmont joy ride would be a 3 day trip for me. Day one: Down to Raleigh on the Carlolinian, stay at a downtown hotel. Day 2, a ride on the Piedmont out and back to Raleigh. Day 3, return home on the Carolinian. Looking at the schedule, I can take a train at either 6:30 Am or 10 AM. !0 AM sounds more like my style.This gets into Durham at 10:23, Greensboro at 11:33 or Charlotte at 1:10 PM There's a return trip to Raleigh that leave Charlotte at 10:30 AM (obviously too early) Greenboro at 12:03 PM (OK, but only a 30 minute cushion) and Durham at 1:03 PM. There's a later train that I would probably prefer to take that leave Charlotte at 3:15 PM, Greensboro at 4:48 PM and Durham at 5:48 PM, arriving at Raleigh at 6:26 PM. The question would be, which place would be most interesting to do my turn? If I went to Charlotte, I would have 2 hours to kill, at Greensboro, 30 minutes or 5 hours to kill, depending on which train, and Durham an hour and a half or 6 hours+ to kill. There may also be some other places to tuen such as Salisbury or High Point, etc. So I'd be interested in interesting station architecture, good places to eat, and interesting sights that can be accessed by walking, local bus, or Uber/taxi.
