    Superliner stairs?

    They're normal stairs but they are narrow and make a 180* bend.

    Setting here on avery tardy westbound Zephyr. Over 5 hrs late because

    I was in downtown Denver today and parked close to Coors Field. On the way back to my truck I noticed the train was in the station. So, I took a little detour and checked it out. I heard about the delays fom one of the OBS crew. Look what was on the "front" baggage car end! P42s 45 and 170...

    Spending the day in Denver

    You're welcome to come visit The Wildlife Experience (.org) in Parker where I work. I can get you in for free. It's about 2 miles east of the E Line light rail's Lincoln Station. I also have a few one-way light rail passes. As for the other things mentioned, they're all great ideas.

    Most Interesting Destination By Amtrak?

    I would say Winter Park (Fraser) also. But I've only been on the CZ. Once DEN-MTP, twice DEN-GBB, once DEN-WIP.

    5 & 6 Rare Mileage?

    Greg, where does it connect with the current Zephyr line outside Burlington? On Google Maps all I've found is the very large maze of ammunition plant tracks.

    5 & 6 Rare Mileage?

    I just crossed that bridge last night on my way from GBB to DEN on the CZ5. They have new concrete piers up for the replacement truss spans.

    Bridges - favorite, least, newest and falling down?

    I was lucky enough to cross this bridge twice within the last 8 days on ky DEN-GBB roundtrip. Nice bridge! I wanted to go to GBB for the museum but it was closed. Next time I go to the Quad Cities area by train I'll go to Burlington so I can see the bridge.

    what about small animals in carriers?

    I sat in the second to last row on a Superliner coach. Last was for crew but they let a blind man and his dog use it. He asked not to be seated downstairs. I overheard two service agents saying he was a high maintenance traveler but he was fine. He just requested knowing which stops he could...

    Diner etiquite

    I ate my first-ever Amtrak diner meal (breakfast) on the CZ from Denver to Galesburg just last week. I was in coach with my wife but she wanted to sleep so I decided to lose my diner virginity. Granted, it was only my second LD trip leg ever. I got up at 6:30 somewhere around Creston, Iowa to...

    The CZ 5 is late!

    I first heard it was due to a bridge but I guess they had track repairs to do. We sat between Osceola and Creston for an hour and a half and other places as well. I heard BNSF uses a lot of track warrants in Iowa.

    The CZ 5 is late!

    Well, we made it. About 6 hours late. I agree about what everyone has said amd I also think if the crew would communicate the reasons for being late then the passengers may be a little more understanding.

    The CZ 5 is late!

    It is 4:20 am CST. We're in Omaha. We should have arrived at 10:55 last night. I personally don't care. The people around me do. Whiners. I've heard everything from, "we should have taken a horse and buggy, it would have been faster and just as bumpy", to "I'm going to call Amtrak and...
