    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic: Amtrak-related Discussion

    You also have to directly inhale a particle that contains the virus, and that particle has to contain enough of a viral load to infect you. I seriously wouldn't worry about a common HVAC system. I'd be more concerned about close contact in enclosed spaces, such as the lounge or dining car. I...

    It’s likely full in the summer because of the various festivals and summer travel. Since most, if not all, festivals have been canceled and people aren’t traveling, that would explain why they canceled it through the summer.

    I noticed this the first time I wore one while grocery shopping. Every time I tried to look down toward my cart while unloading, I couldn't see. You have to train yourself to actually move your head to look down rather than simply looking down with your eyes. Basically, pretend it's the middle...

    Trip Report Word Count

    I always hit the photo limit long before any word limit, if there is one. I solve the problem by breaking my trip report into multiple posts (within the same thread) I write the report in a Word document first. That way, I don't have to worry about losing anything if the upload fails. I...

    Some airlines are doing things like leaving the middle seat open when three across or the aisle seat open in rows of two. They’re also doing more extensive cleaning and marking social distance spacing at the gate.
