    Yep, the Food Trucks are Open, most stayed Open for Pick-up/To Go Only during the Stay @ Home Orders, but now that Texas is "Opening Up" and Eating Places are allowed 50% Occupancy Inside and No Limits on Patios and Outside Seating, most of them have opened up their outside tables. There are...

    Tip: Look in the "Baby Section" of the Store. Plenty of Wipes in our Stores here in Austin! Just no Lysol or Clorox ones!

    Bucket List trip May 2020: trains 421, 4 and 50

    You definitely need to call "Customer Relations" to report the Problems and Lousy Service on your Trip. You are due a nice Goodwill Voucher and the Easy Rider OBS are in need of Re-Training or De-Training!

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic: Amtrak Food Service Discussion

    I still remember going up into the Catskills in the Summer ( while stationed in Conn) and attending a few Shows @ the Famous Jewish Resort/Horels where so many famous Comedians performed. I also got to see Wilt Chamberlain play Basketball ( think it was @ Kutchers??) since the Hotels hired...

    Amtrak restores staffing positions at Marshall station

    Longview is where the Thruway Busess for Shrevport and Houston meet the Eagle, and the Historic Rennovated Station is a great place with friendly,helpful agents. It's not far to downtown, which has lots of good eating places. I like it much more than Marshall,( a Crew Change Stop) although...

    I'm not familiar with either one but one first glance their qualifications seem ideal for the board. Keep in mind all such appointments are Political, so it depends on who the politician that puts in their names is that gives one a clue as to their fitness for the job.

    When I rode the Cap Ltd from WAS to CHI back in Oct. 2018, I received the Amenity Kit which was in my room upon boarding, but I thought the "Fresh and Contemporary" Dinner and Breakfast were the Worst 2 Meals by Far I've ever had on Amtrak! There have been several improvements to the...

    How do feel about riding "Coach" ?

    Texas Central Railway

    Texas has LOTS and Lots of Lawyers, in other words Lots of Bad Lawyers, especially in the Courts here.( they're Elected and Politics is what matters, not Legal Competence.) Our Supreme Court is noted for always siding with Corporations so the Texas Central should prevail.

    Closure of NYP (1am to 5am)

    As one who got to see the " Original Penn Station" as well as the "New" one age and become a Dungeon, I much preferred the Old One even if it was tired and worn down by the time the Original was destroyed by the Vegas Mindset Developers and Real Estate Moguls and their Puppet Politicians.
