    California Zephyr which direction is best

    Westbound. You're guaranteed more scenery (unless the train is running ridiculously late). Eastbound is nice too, though. I did that trip in March 2015, and while I didn't get to see as much scenery, it was still a beautiful trip.

    Grand Canyon WMH overnight??

    I’m staying at a wonderful Airbnb that is only a block from the Grand Canyon Railway station. It’s only $60/night and has a (free) washer/dryer. I’m not sure of your trip date or their availability. I’ll send you the link in a private message so you can check it out.

    Amtrak has golden opportunity this summer

    That’s not my point. You said Michigan doesn’t have commuters. You didn’t specify how long a traffic jam on 275, the Lodge, 696, or 94/23 through Ann Arbor had to be to qualify as “commuting”.

    Is the Chicago lounge back in full operation yet?

    I beg your pardon. (I am so glad I got a chance to use this image again. I couldn't resist. It was the perfect opening.)

    So what do all of the commuters who don't live in major metropolitan areas do? What are we supposed to do in Michigan, for example?

    I think commuters are the larger concern.

    Trains use diesel, which is also hauled by tanker trucks, so I'm not sure where you're going with this?

    The COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card as a Travel Document

    I know we're getting wildly off-topic, but I can speak to this. When I lived in Ann Arbor (1999-2001), I worked in the file repository for the University of Michigan Medical System. It was full-time on third shift. The building was completely separate from the main medical campus and set up...

    Also, some of the cases up north came from spring breakers and snowbirds returning in the spring. They won't be reflected in Florida's stats.

    Mask Mandate for Transportation Extended

    Correct. I should have been more specific when making my point.

    Mask Mandate for Transportation Extended

    Those microbes are carried in respiratory droplets. The mask blocks the droplets.

    Amtrak Mask Mandate - Practical Discussion
