    Who travels in the Sleeper Cars?

    When I was younger and my parents were paying it was usually by coach but when I started working at 17 and making "money" I always take a sleeper if they are not sold out !!! Even on day trips I try and go "Business Class" on Via or on Amtrak... It's worth every penny :):):)

    Round trip to Chicago- Washington, DC. 50, 29

    Sounds like a great trip !!! I wish I could do it to... But I live in Canada and can't cross the border, but I wouldn't right now anyway. :( Maybe next year hopefully when all of this will be a distant memory... Looking forward to your next post... :):):)

    Sumitomo/Siemens Contract for 137 Cars (former bi-levels)

    Please no "DMU'S" !!! At least 500 cars not coupled together so you can add cars as demand warrants!? In the UK everything is "DMU" which sucks ! I don't mind "EMU's" though...

    Shortest/Cheapest rides in Amtrak

    That's not bad if you don't have a car, or if you take a cab across the border which could be out of the ballpark $$$ , or have to "walk" across the bridge and go through customs (not really ???) dragging your luggage !!! ??? Can you physically walk across the bridge? I can't remember?
