Alan, thanks for the kind words. I enjoy continuing to keep track of Amtrak and the highs and lows.
On another issue, while I am supportive of the gay/lesbian issues, the thread seems to have taken a non-Amtrak feeling and is now, a discussion of who is out and who is not and does not seem to relate to Amtrak. Just my opinion! thanks, Hank
Sorry Alan, I just get tired of that guy chasing me around so he can post something negative about everything I say. As for the NEC..of course it's important, not just to the northeast but to the entire country. Wish I could ride it once in a while. hj
