    The airplane seat recline controversy heats up again

    Economy class on a plane is uncomfortable enough without having to sit bolt-upright for the entire flight. I recline my seat unless the passenger behind me objects. There is room to stretch out by putting my legs in the space under the seat in front of me (moving the carryon back if...

    Trump budget cuts Amtrak (again)

    I doubt that Trump has ever been on a train or any other public conveyance in his life. Only private jets and limousines for him and his ilk.

    Progressive Railroading Dec 2019 Article

    Gardner article

    They are trying to push us onto airplanes. They figure that we'll spring for first class and they want that revenue going to Delta and the like, not Amtrak.

    Disappointed with meals

    At least you got a hot boxed meal. Last time we were on the Lakeshore, they ran out of those and only had cold ones left (It was February). They still had the posters up advertising the Lakeshore Limited showing a couple having a nice dinner with wine though.
