    Could be. Or wishful thinking on the part of AA?

    2020 Voting Has Begun! Registration Deadlines Begin Oct. 4 (Pro-Rail and Non-Partisan)

    Initially, I thought that might be the case. Reading the information from my Board of Elections more carefully, the date that the ballot was received was the same date that the ballot was processed and approved. That was one week after I put the ballot in the mail slot at the Post Office. The...

    2020 Voting Has Begun! Registration Deadlines Begin Oct. 4 (Pro-Rail and Non-Partisan)

    In Ohio, our Secretary of State's Office mailed applications for an absentee ballot to every registered voter. My local newspaper also printed--two Sundays in a row--a ballot application that was located on Page A2 of the paper. I completed the application from the Secretary of State and...

    The map arrived in my Saturday, October 17th, mail. I was surprised!

    Auto Train Meals

    My experience was the SCA was on the train the entire trip, but informed us that she would retire for the night at 11:00 P. M. Whether someone would cover for her, I don't know. I had not need to request any service during the night. The personnel in the dining car also remained for the...

    Business class on the Illini/Saluki is a ripoff

    I think it depends on the route as to what the seating arrangements are. My most experience is the DAY-DTW and DAY-MSP. On flights to DTW, First Class is not available, normally. On flights to MSP, First Class 2+1 seating is available, normally. I agree that both domestic and international...

    Business class on the Illini/Saluki is a ripoff

    Delta's regional jets that offer First Class service have 2+1 seating and have free drinks with at least one passing of the snack basket with a nice variety of items including bananas.

    Best Chicago-Florida Route?

    Their web site indicated that there might be a delay due to the "present conditions". I wonder when that statement was posted. I thought it might be this year. Maybe not. Oh well, if it comes, great. If not, so be it. The Sun will still rise tomorrow morning. I expect.

    Auto Train Meals

    I had some size concerns regarding my 2020 Envision (which is the "Mama Bear" in the Bear Family; the Enclave is the "Papa Bear".) There were no Auto Train able size issues as it turned out and I don't think the Enclave is much wider, if any, than the Envision.

    #52 Auto Train delay - 10/13 Departure

    The Real Location Map shows the train still en route and not due to arrive until after 6:00 P. M. today. I wonder what the food situation is on the train since it is so delayed? And, why such a lengthy delay?

    Meals in the room?

    I have not been barked at but have been asked to wait in the Lounge Car until my seating was called. The PA was working in the Lounge Car; it was not working in my Sleeper than the crew member did not know that.

    Meals in the room?

    But, not Roasted Potato Wedges, please. Nearly all that I have ever been served in any restaurant anywhere have been so overcooked and dry that they are nearly inedible--in my opinion.

    I do as well. When's the quiz, Professors? :)

    Sounds like a math problem my 6th grade teacher would have devised. :)

    Best Chicago-Florida Route?

    Probably the former NYC tracks between Columbus and Dayton still exist? (Not sure what you meant by "rationalizing" them and then "Conrail finished them".) I recall traveling on PRR trains between Columbus en route to Chicago that stopped at Dayton. The National Limited, if I recall...

    Best Chicago-Florida Route?

    I know that at least part of the route between Dayton and Columbus is gone; tracks removed and the "path" is now a bikeway. There might be other tracks between the two cities of which I am unaware. (Rather think there are when there was some serious discussion of a...
