    Mmm, good thing I moved my move to Georgia up it seems then, I already have my quilted shirt and heavy coat sitting here because it's gonna be cold during my 1 day layover in Chicago.

    Justification for LD trains

    And if I don't use drugs why should I be forced to pee on command? That does indeed treat you guilty until proven innocent.

    Justification for LD trains

    I use that term because I dislike that people are complacent enough to allow what is nothing less than invasion of privacy in order to make themselves feels a tiny bit safer. I am completely against the erosion of our rights just like I am against having topee in a cup for drug tests. I don't...

    And these same sheep like to spout the quip, "Well if you aren't doing anything wrong, what's the problem?"

    Justification for LD trains

    I cannot fly, severe aviophobia plus social anxiety disorder and we all know how crowded those flying sardine cans are. I cannot ride the greyhound, again, a sardine can packed with people. On either of the two I'd have a serious panic attack. With so much room on Amtrak my medication works well...

    Superliner Roomettes - what's the difference?

    Having never been in a room on a train, is this through a speaker on the wall?If so maybe use some duct tape and a nice, thick fabric pad taped over it. At least that's what I would do. Then again when I take out my hearing aids a bomb could go off when I am sleeping and all that would make me...

    Or even back when they ran passenger trains. More incentive to have an actual schedule. Now that they don't do passengers because Amtrak does where's the incentive to have actual schedules?

    Chicago

    Will do. I catch the EB here Monday evening and get to Chi-Town Wednesday ... some time. Emailed the HI Chi about the traisn delays etc and am assured my booking is good no matter what time the EB pulls in. Of course with all the freight delays staying overnight was my only option so I need to...

    Chicago

    Heh, HI Chicago is actually where I am staying overnight. By 6-7 hours I meant between 11am checkout and the time the Cardinal leaves.

    Chicago

    I've got an overnight layover in Chicago the 12/13 of this month. Looking for a good, inexpensive coffee/sandwich shop to wile away about 6-7 hours while enjoying a good book. Close to Union station preferred.

    I'm guilty of spreading sun dried tomato hummus on my bun and topping the dog with banana peppers, chives, and basil pesto.

    Ah yes, did want to ask. Which side of the EB #8 would have the best views from coach? North or south?

    Got my ticket to lose my rail virginity. I leave Pasco, WA on Monday the 10th to hit Chicago Wednesday the 12th, one night layover then the Card and Crescent Thursday the 13th to Atlanta. Here's looking to a great experience and maybe one of you will be on one of those trains.
