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

    They ship what they can't carry. You really don't know anyone who has had to do this?

    In Transit, "Empire Builder" Film.

    Well, I went to MSU. There was no dress code at the time.

    In Transit, "Empire Builder" Film.

    I started in September 1978, so we overlapped for a few months.

    Oh, yes, I remember Concordia well. My sister went to the Concordia College in Saint Paul. When did you attend?

    Where did you go to undergrad? I went to Moorhead State University, as it was known at the time, in Moorhead MN.

    Please Mr. Anderson (sleeping suites in coach?)

    In the 5th paragraph, there is this sentence: "The ground floor has table seating, kind of like the dining car in a train."

    Why did you choose to drive from Boston to Portland instead of taking, for example, the Downeaster?

    AmSnag Oddity

    Church food pantry effectiveness is definitely more important than Amsnag at this time. Thank you for both.

    AmSnag Oddity

    I had problems for several days in a row trying to use the 1st Amsnag you listed for dates in December 2020 and January 2021. It would inform me that there were no train services on day 7 or 12 or 3 etc on daily trains. Searched the this forum for a possible answer and found this, so thanks...

    Restore Passenger Service to Southern Montana?

    That is true. I went to grad school in Madison, WI and I never saw so many bicyclists. Those students rode their bikes through SNOW! I was so impressed. UW-Mad had more bicyclists than warm weather ASU in Tempe, AZ which has great weather and few hills. Yes, there were plenty of bicyclists...

    Amtrak teases upgraded bedding/amenities for sleeping cars

    The roomettes in the superliners don't have a toilet, but where the toilet would have been are the steps to get up to the upper berth, so it's the same amount of room even without the toilet.

    New to Amtrak-carryons and food questions

    By the way, what/where is CVS? The only thing I could find during googling besides the omnipresent pharmacy was Clovis, NM and I know that's not what you meant.

    New to Amtrak-carryons and food questions

    I'm a light-boned and muscled 4 foot eleven incher and can't put anything heavier than a hat on the overhead compartment on train or plane, so I have never bothered with "carry-on luggage" and use my regular size, but lightweight, suitcase and I always aim for the car luggage slots when...

    AGR Bonus Points

    I never get any emails about special offers from AGR or Amtrak. Do I have to opt-in to get such emails? I do have an AGR account and have used points to purchase trips. I do get emails about surveys and of course about impending trips.

    NY Times: Anderson out, William Flynn in

    I have heard this about Cincinnati, but when did it take place? I rode through there last August and there was a station agent there and a very good one he was.
