    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    I'm wondering if they were empty though, being at the end of the train, and the lower numbers of travelers.

    Tamales on Surfliner Cafe menu

    Today I noticed (and purchased) tamales on the Surfliner Menu. They are 4 dollars per tamale, and are microwaved. They aren't bad. Authentically made, but the flavor is a bit lost with the microwaving. Are they exclusive to Surfliner? Or the West Coast? The cafe car attendant told me they are...

    favorite scenery on Amtrak usually passed through night,that you saw day due hours long train delay?

    I personally don't think I've seen anything better because of being late. My first big trip was when I was 12 with my grandmother, we went to Seattle on the Empire Builder. We went through Glacier at night because of delays. My grandmother hyped me up to see Glacier the whole time and I didn't...

    Is it possible to book Chicago-LA Via Texas Eagle?

    Detroit to Windsor

    Detroit-Windsor crossing takes about an hour if it's peak times, or busy. I've had times where it took me 5 minutes to cross, and times where it's taken 2 hours. I'd suggest getting over there early. There's things to do, stuff to see in Windsor. Nice mall, and a great casino (Caesar's) about...

    Hoosier State tickets sales suspended for after June 30

    I drove I-65 to Chicago from Indy. I didn't run into much issues. The only issues I had was some of the highways in Chicago, and the scenic tour I took of Gary on accident.

    Hoosier State tickets sales suspended for after June 30

    Again, as someone who lives in Indianapolis, it is almost impossible to advocate for the Hoosier State. Even as a foamer, as a railfan, whatever you want to call me, I simply look at the numbers, look at it's effectiveness, and look at it's revenue, and A. Do not see many options to advocate...
