    Future of the Pacific Parlour Cars?

    This topic has already been discussed some already over on another thread, but it's been drowned out by larger topics like the future of all LD trains, etc. I feel like it's much more than a "tidbit," though. They may be only five cars, but they're Amtrak's only unique, vintage passenger...

    Some Q's from a first-time redeemer

    Greetings, oh wise ones! I'm up late scheming about how to cash in some AGR points and credit card points to fund a trip up to the Northwest next spring. My high school junior wants to visit some colleges in Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. Perfect, since I really want to see that great land...

    Trains to the inauguration already full

    I have a bit of a tradition-- actually, a one-time tradition -- of taking trains to DC to attend presidential inaugurations. That was no particular challenge in '92, for Clinton's first. The unforseen bonus of that journey was a ride on two museum pieces that were soon to be removed from...
