    Do we really need HSR for LD?

    I was counting empire.. it used to be csx and 100 correct? They spent all that money and are back at 79!?

    Do we really need HSR for LD?

    There is 90-110 running on bnsf, csx, and UP. Needs to be more of it, but it’s possible.

    Do we really need HSR for LD?

    The only train I’ve had serious cell phone signal issues with is the Coast Starlight in Oregon.

    Do we really need HSR for LD?

    There should be more 90-110 mph running across the country. Once it goes over 110, the costs get high enough that it needs to be in specific corridors. And of course there are other issues like what good is 100 mph running on a Chicago to New York line (there is already some 100 mph running on...

    On the Crescent? There’s way more than 30 people in the Atlanta waiting room to board the train. I’d guess it’s close to 100 usually.

    Technically #1 still departs from Orlando, but service is suspended correct?

    They were fresh compared to the frozen cheeseburgers and pizzas!

    Amtrak Dining

    The sandwiches on Amtrak are never really fresh. Lol. The “fresh” salads and sandwiches were cut from the cafe menu during the pandemic. Most likely because of the shelf life.

    BNSF and Amtrak Long Distance

    On the eastern side, Norfolk Southern used to be much better than CSX. Unfortunately nobody seems to remember how to run a railroad these days. :-/

    Crescent Scenery

    I love the scenery on the Crescent. Blue Ridge Mountains, Small southern downtowns built up along the tracks, rolling hills in Alabama, southern farms in Mississippi crossing the Lake on the way into New Orleans.

    Amtrak Dining

    The vendor hasn’t changed since traditional dining has it? Was it a different vendor for the salad boxes?

    Speed Tracking App

    It seems to be quite accurate. I’m not sure how it connects and what type of combination of data and gps it uses. Sometimes it has trouble connecting, but once it’s connected it usually stays connected.

    The airport has short term and long term parking and rental car options as well as convenient drop off and pick up locations. I’ve been picked up and dropped off from both the South Bend Amtrak station, and the Airport. I prefer the airport and so did my relatives who were picking me up.

    Have you ridden the south shore?

    See that’s the problem... a flyover isn’t sexy high speed rail... it’s a boring overpass. But it would do so much to improve OTP for 12 trains per day (and growing hopefully...)

    Amtrak's 50th Year Message - "New Year, New Enhancements"

    I think “reserved” means you need to have a ticket on an Amtrak train.
