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

    So they will abandon their residence, leave everything they own behind??? Shut the door, leave it ALL to be disposed of by the landlord. The only personal property they will "move on" in life with is the clothes on their back? Is that what you're saying?

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    I'd stay put! Traveling/moving around only puts you in more contact with people & things that can be infected.

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    Snowbird migration. The southbound is empty (1-or-2 diner seatings) and northbound FULL (4 dinner seatings)...been on both. The Villages empty this time of year. All those old folk are returning to NY & NJ, COVID-19 Ground Zero!. As to why the top of the highest risk group would go back there is...

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    But all the trucks were broken off those cars! And probably a lot of other damage from falling over. Bet those auto-carriers will be out-of-service for a long time. The Village snowbirds will prove to all be senile w/dementia if they plan to go back to NY/NJ.

    Waiting room for Autotrain Sanford

    SFA has a really nice large renovated playground area with picnic tables and benches. The same end of the platform has a series of 2-top tables. There's also a row of benches between the playground and "smokers corner". Everyone is familiar with my pre-boarding picnics. Just for my info: are the...

    I have always, for years, brought pizza-box-tops to duck tape over the ceiling vent...mainly to stop the blowing.

    Auto train review

    Generally...highest fares follow the SnowBird migration, Holidays, and school schedule. In the Summer it seems to be the same price both directions. On my Feb trip last month, the price was dependent on the specific day. Cheapest was leaving Sat. the 8th and returning on Thursday the 27th. I use...
