    Anderson to AA?

    Airliners.net link on an Amtrak site? 😆 I have seen everything. But seriously, I would think Anderson still has a no compete clause to work at any major airline.

    California High Speed Rail is in trouble..........I know, shocking

    To beat this dead horse, apparently the California politicians want to take the CHSR money and use it on commuter projects, or just not spend the money on a vanity project when the budget is suspected to have a $50 Billion shortfall...

    RFP issued for Amfleet I replacement

    GML is right about the new California car, the Prius is so 2010s.:) So many here think the Siemen's coach is most likely candidate for the Amfleet 1s. We will see, still think the NEC is getting DMU/EMUs.

    Overpowered short consists

    Makes sense, but the Texas Eagle which routinely pulls 5-7 cars and yes there are some mild grades. The same can be said of the City of New Orleans which has a single unit. Is there a reason the Cap Limited pulling 5 cars have two Genesis? I think there more to it than your simple explanation.

    With many of the LD getting shortened consists, many are still using two units on five and six car trains. Why? The SWC can't make 90 with one unit and five cars?

    I do not know that, though it held up well after hitting a cement truck. Its mostly for cosmetic and quick fix after accidents. Genesis had the same setup.

    Michigan trains late!

    There must be some bureaucrat over the cutting of checks to Amtrak in the Michigan state government. One would think the Michigan government or any state government cutting checks to Amtrak would insist on at least on times service. If the CEO of NS got a terse official letter from the Michigan...

    At least they can drop the locomotive off at the Siemens factory for some bodywork, along the way to Oakland.
