    Nashville to Atlanta line

    Yea. The wife and I have been looking for areas to purchase already. With the commute and our budget we both like the Yulee area.

    Nashville to Atlanta line

    I get to chattanooga with 10,000 feet trains in less than 4 hours so running a 8 car passenger train will get there in great time. Lots of double main for the terrain it covers.

    Nashville to Atlanta line

    that’s the overall plan we’ve been told. Down the road the train would run to savannah to connect with silver lines. I have been applying for Jax Amtrak for months.

    Nashville to Atlanta line

    I am a engineer for CSX. I work along the W&A mainline. We have been informed Amtrak will be using our line to run 2 sets of trains a day on our track Nashville to Atlanta. Also Amtrak is proposing to purchase our old Hulsey Yard.

    New Amtrak engines

    I’ve always wanted to run one of those. The cab controls seem very worker friendly

    New Amtrak engines

    Out of pure curiosity as a Freight engineer. What are the newest locomotives being used on the longer routes? I've seen allot of P42's just didn't know if Amtrak is using any tier 4 locomotives.

    pros and cons of being a Amtrak Engineer or Conductor

    Oh I’m sure. I’m a quick learner though. I was told that the schooling in Deleware was cut a little shorter if you are already a class 1 Engineer license.
