    CZ#5 Transdorm

    Thanks. This will be my first time in the transdorm. I'm looking forward to a new experience. I guess it will be a long walk to the dining car but exercise is good.

    CZ Service Disruption (6/25) and more delays

    I just received a similar revised ticket for #6 out of Omaha on July 22. Since the train is averaging almost 4 hours delay into Omaha I wonder why they only changed it 1 hour.

    Cross-Country 11-City Honeymoon

    Another great spot to visit in Omaha is Lauritzen Gardens and Botonical Center. 100 acres of natural beauty. The Old Market area near the train station has shops and great places to eat. Enjoy your trip. It sounds like a dream honeymoon to me.

    Iowa is terrible, and other thoughts.

    Hope your friend gets the pizza before the shops close. I'm making this trip in a few weeks and will definitely remember to pack some wine to enjoy in my roomette if we are very delayed into Chicago.

    What a great trip report. I'm sorry your trip is over because I'll miss reading you entertaining reports.
