    Well it been over 30 days and all the Pacific Parlor Cars are still sitting at Beech Grove (As of today). I guess there might be something afoot. The cars have been to the south side of the building and have a fresh coat of spray paint on them. Unfortunately the graffiti art probably will delay there entry into service on the SRI.

    Haven’t heard any updates either, but my guess is they’re trying to work out the routing and payments for moving them.

    2 off topic comments: first i think it is unfortunate that the forum has a rule against using "strong language" in reference to amtrak management. second, i am glad at least a couple ppc's will be preserved and used. my family and i have many, many good memories of trips on the cs. long live brian rosenwald
