    Brightline takes over XPress West!

    Ok, I see. Wasn't aware they were still planning to go beyond Victorville. That makes a lot more sense.

    Brightline takes over XPress West!

    Possibility they might run trains through on the San Bernardino line? Of course, they would have to use the Cajon Pass, therefore meaning they'd have to negotiate with BNSF, but the plus side is a one-seat ride to Los Angeles and not having to use a car to drive up to Victorville.

    Status of Business Class on Lake Shore Limited?

    As of September, it was still part of the Boston consist in the cafe/business configuration. South of Albany's just coach/sleeper service.

    Going into Pennsylvania station instead of DC

    Also yes, the Silver Meteor still serves food. It's on your ticket. Grab it at the dining car (technically "sleeping lounge" but it's the same thing).

    Boston MBTA: Why not EMUs or at least electric locomotives?

    Fitchburg line has potential, considering the amount of park and rides on it. Lowell line does too. Lowell line needs some new stops on Salem St or Montvale Ave and in Somerville (maybe across from a new green line stop). Shawsheen could use one too, but that's north of Anderson.

    Where'd you hear that? Seems odd to use a British design.

    New dining options (flex dining) effective October 1, 2019

    Seems odd they don't. That sucks, hopefully it is implemented in the future.

    New dining options (flex dining) effective October 1, 2019

    I have to say, I actually liked the similar option on the LSL with beans, potatoes, carrots and beef. Only issue is that they didn't serve a roll with it. But the dessert is fine, drinks are fine too

    Amtrak LSL Chicken Alfredo?

    Hi everyone, So on Amtrak's official LSL menu, it lists Check Penne Alfredo as one of the options. However, I cannot find any photos, anyone reviewing it, or even anyone discussing its existence. Was this item discontinued? I'd just like to know seeing as I will probably be riding the LSL in a...

    RFP issued for Amfleet I replacement

    I mean, it suits the chargers. You are correct. I wonder if the lounge is getting cut if only half of the car is a cafe.

    Ah, thanks. So the IDOT ones are only coaches.

    The new cars are called CALIDOTs. They have cab cars. These ones. They are called CALIDOT because both the Illinois DOT and CalTrans purchased them.

    RFP issued for Amfleet I replacement

    Well I see your point, but I said CALIDOT when referring to the cars, not CalTrans. I know what CalTrans is.

    It's called CALIDOT because IDOT also purchased the cars.

    RFP issued for Amfleet I replacement

    Huh. I thought they only used 6 axles (the Dash 8) as a substitute for the late Genesis delivery. Why would they need more?

    Wasn't that metra?

    RFP issued for Amfleet I replacement

    Seems like those are fine then, especially since it would be expensive for NCDOT to buy new cars.

    I wonder if NCDOT will buy some for the Piedmont, how good are their Pullman cars?

    RFP issued for Amfleet I replacement

    If they make cab cars, for visual appeal they'd probably make them similar to the front end of the ACS 64s, just as they did with the CALIDOTS. The cab cars are visually identical to the front of an SC 44. Case in point: :
