    I caught Amtrak #6(08) today with the The Patrón Tequila Express, former GMO 50, on the end. This eastbound California Zephyr was running nearly seven and a half hours late at Agency, Iowa. I believe the delays were from the aftereffects of yesterday's floods.

    I wonder how they are managing with the new rules.

    Could someone mention what exactly are the new restrictions, Anderson and Co. imposed on private railcars?

    No open platform riding, no open vestibule, one sober person at all times, keeping control of passengers alcohol intake. Those are the ones I’m more interested in with the Patron having heard the stories from the car.

    I was fortunate enough to get a ride in this Jewel between Grand Junction and Denver on the back of the Zephyr.A good time was had by all!:D:)

    My SCA told me that they had a Reception for the Crew the night before in Emeryville and that Hangovers were a common thing among the Crew!;)

    Let's just say that the Bar is Impressive and Loaded with Top Shelf Choices in Adult Beverages!

    I’ve heard the stories from that car. I’ve never been on it though. I have seen scantly clad women going to that car on layover once.
