    Employee Praise

    Thanks. Tried this different link and it worked OK. The one I'd used before is Recognize an Excellent Employee - Send Some Praise and its fill-in blocks are slightly different.

    Atlantic Coast Service discussion

    Seems like the Valley Flyer does not operate on the weekends, at least that one.

    Long Distance Train Coach & Sleeper Fares (Buckets)

    Looks like the next round of fare increases has begun, but so far just the EB and CZ. Aarrrghhhh!! Edit: The Auto Train fares have also increased.

    Employee Praise

    Just sent Amtrak an email using their Contact Us page asking them to fix the Submit button on the praise page nd got an immediate confirmation with a green bar across the same page with a check mark. Any bets on when they'll fix the Submit button on the praise page? How about bets on if...

    Recent Beech Grove Tour

    The huge employee parking lots are shown with only a handful vehicles, so that probably explains the lack of visible workers or other activity. So while others whimper and snivel about the lack of activity, I think this video was shot on either a weekend or a federal holiday. That's my...

    Manual connections booking together?

    Could that be because of a different freight train situation in Germany?

    Freight Derailment disrupts Capitol Limited 2/3/23

    I might suggest breaking ties with social media and being more careful about choosing friends.

    Viewliner II Part 4: Sleeping Car production, delivery, deployment

    I gather from some previous posts that VLII's are made bit on the cheap side. You'd think by getting rid of the commodes in the Roomettes, they could have put the $ saved into some more durable furnishings. But, then again . . . . .

    Roundtrip Atlanta to California questions

    But on those days when the Sunset Limited doesn't depart LAX, the route is SWC to CHI-CL to WAS and CRES to ATL. It seems the OP couldn't understand why LAX-NOL-ATL was not available, acknowledging a LAX-CHI-WAS-ATL was available. That led me to respond as I did, that there's no LAX to ATL...

    Roundtrip Atlanta to California questions

    The train from Los Angeles to New Orleans operates only three days of the week, departing on Sunday, Wednesday or Friday. Perhaps you gave the ticket agent a return date when the train wasn't running.

    Food suggestions for coach passengers

    Unless one is allergic to peanut butter or can only eat crackers from wheat harvested under the light of a full moon.

    Long Distance Train Coach & Sleeper Fares (Buckets)

    Updated fare bucket chart. Only change is the addition of two lower Roomette buckets on the CS. FYI: Best (only) way to reliably inform me of any error or a new bucket is by private conversion (PM).

    Coast Starlight discussion

    Thanks for that one! Wonder if there are any other Roomette buckets on this this train?

    Long Distance Train Coach & Sleeper Fares (Buckets)

    Trimetbusfan just reported the missing Roomette bucket - it's $521, the seventh one. I suspect there may not be any more as the current $486 to $846 range meshes nicely with the old five bucket range of $432 to $765. Kinda. Sorta. Maybe.

    LAX to NYC via Seattle or Portland

    The Westbound EB is scheduled to depart Pasco WA for Portland OR at 0645hrs and sunrise at Pasco tomorrow is 0720hrs, 35 minutes later. But civil twilight begins at about the scheduled departure time, so viewing of the spectacular Columbia River Gorge should be OK - getting brighter with time...

    Crescent alternative to NOL; roomette questions

    Dummy bookings will give up-to-date information (see Details) about which stations provide checked baggage service. The RPA has aftermarket timetables for all the routes, such as this one for the Crescent: This shows...
