    Union Pacific Big Boy #4014

    It's so big! Seriously, like watching a dinosaur run.

    Amtrak nurse (proposal for the future)

    And it might invalidate good Samaritan protection.

    Amtrak nurse (proposal for the future)

    Just like the Northern Pacific, or the B&O, back in the day.

    Buffalo Depew Station

    It's this that I remember most vividly from childhood.

    Buffalo Depew Station

    Buffalo Central Terminal You should be able to get to the details of the plan from here. The public facing web page at Buffalo Central Terminal is not as up to date or easy to navigate as it could be. It's ambitious to be sure, but I'm not sure how realistic it is, they do comparisons to...

    Amtrak Dining

    I'll eat a veggie burger with bacon, so not kosher is no problem for me.

    Buffalo Depew Station

    I agree that the trains that are able to stop in downtown Buffalo should continue to do so, but the Lake Shore doesn't and Depew is further away from the core of town than the Central Terminal. I hope that something useful can be done with that magnificent building and as big as it is it...

    Buffalo Depew Station

    to me, this will always be Buffalo's train station. It still stands and unless I'm mistaken the LSL goes right by it.

    Most Interesting Encounter(s) on a Train

    I'd have been much more impressed by his wife being Tommy Douglas' daughter.

    Midwest Rail Plan final Report

    They did model at different frequencies and with different additional legs added, but I'm not sure if they varied existing services (if that makes sense). I don't think they did schedule variations...all these things matter, but at some point there gets to be too many variables.

    Montana southern tier service?

    Am I right in thinking that the Milwaukee Road's collapse had a big effect in SD?

    Can the Coast Starlight route be extended?

    Yeah, maybe not. Maybe what I really want is a second Cascades thru to BC at a more reasonable hour.

    Can the Coast Starlight route be extended?

    Extending the other end to Vancouver BC seems more desirable to me, but that could be because I live in PDX and go to BC often.

    Montana southern tier service?

    If there was a N-S thru Wyoming to MT, then a route through Rapid City could hook up to that. Aberdeen is small, Rapid City and Sioux Falls are the only cities of any size and Sioux Falls is going to take a weird dog leg, but not to big, but you're right - on the west end it's tough. Maybe you...

    Montana southern tier service?

    It would be possible to route through South Dakota if you totally disconnect from the Empire Builder route and either cut through the NE corner of the state or go through the middle, but I'm not sure either of those options makes sense for a transcontinental route.
