    Alan Burden (AlanB)

    I was very saddened to hear about Alan this evening, and it's an understatement to say I'm still shocked. Alan was the lifeblood of the Amtrak Unlimited community since its inception; a good friend; a true advocate for Amtrak and for all those who loved Amtrak. This was far too early for him...

    points expiring soon

    Is anyone updating the Museum?

    I require nothing -- I don't run this site anymore. But I think what you're asking is why the site asks for a birthdate. It's to comply with COPPA which requires that a member be at least 13 years old to join. So, if you are at least 13 years of age, feel free to give a false birthdate that...

    Change in the 1st class lounge rules?

    Jim: The policy did not change. I guess it's just a matter of brevity in that particular material you were reading. The anecdote in Chicago just demonstrates an agent that needs some training.

    Amtrak Android App and New AGR Website

    The problem is known and being worked on. If you go to the AGR website directly in the Android browser, you should have better results until it is fixed. :)

    Giordano's-open bar seating?

    The bar is open seating -- a nice way to jump in and out without waiting too long (well, unless you order a deep dish pizza, as previously noted ;) )

    Any way to board train 50 on NEC?

    Train 50 is so frequently late that I would not even bother giving this a second thought.

    Problem with having two credit cards?

    AGR Insider is at the top of the chain at Amtrak's headquarters - it is perfectly safe.

    Why not stopovers on AGR trip?

    First class accom charge on Acela, WAS-BOS = $130 First class accom charge on Acela, WAS-NYP ($116) + NYP-BOS ($83) = $199 Not quite double, sure, but more nonetheless.
