    Flexible dining - Requesting a review from a recent rider

    If it was a DC-8, then it sure wasn't only "a while" ago! 😅

    Flexible dining - Requesting a review from a recent rider

    Thanks. Anyone got nutrition facts or reviews for the ENCHILADAS, CHICKEN MARSALA, or SHRIMP IN LOBSTER SAUCE yet?

    Flexible dining - Requesting a review from a recent rider

    How are the new dishes on the West menu? https://www.amtrak.com/content/dam/projects/dotcom/english/public/documents/menus/routes/Flexible-Dining-Menu-West-0720.pdf Does anyone have nutrition facts on the ENCHILADAS, CHICKEN MARSALA, and SHRIMP IN LOBSTER SAUCE? I'm of the opinion that Amtrak...

    Thanks. We just can't do anything with Amtrak at this time and really don't want to drive at night. RNO-KFS is only 4 hours 25 minutes which isn't a "proper" overnight either. What are these errors that you speak of? I haven't had any problems with Mike's site. Does anyone have a screenshot or...

    RNO PDX Bus

    Connections aren't feasible to either 11/14 or 5/6. The 11 leaves KFS at 8:17 AM which means we'd have to drive overnight from RNO to KFS. Same goes for the southbound with the 14 getting to KFS at 9:50 PM. A connection from the 5 might work, but the 6 wouldn't. It leaves RNO at 4:06 PM which...

    Yes Ricky, you know that I've been trying to do something like this for quite some time. Mike is another unemployed driver with similar goals, so we've gotten to know each other very well. That said, there's not a single passenger yet so I remain unemployed. As for the Bay Area, it's already...

    It might be. But we have nothing better with California on one side, $29 flights to Las Vegas, and no connections out of SLC. Although the difference is less than 8 hours when including check-in & TSA (unless you have Global Entry). There's inevitably "more" social distancing and sightseeing...

    Again, you're absolutely correct, but I don't own a home or IRA. And again, I believe we use the same attorney and if he advised against it, then I wouldn't do it except for "prestige". It's also possible or even likely that we'd form an LLC once we figure out how to find passengers. Without...

    You're absolutely correct that it's a "normal way...to shield yourself from liability should something go wrong". Yet this only applies if there's banks, creditors, or potential lawsuits involved. There's no banks or creditors, and the insurance company is liable for BIPD in the event of an...

    They aren't a LLC because they're not operating and have no passengers or employees. Whether it's a strike of confidence for you doesn't matter, since you're not involved. Spending money on "prestige" isn't a sound business practice.

    I tried to get a job or partner with them but they didn't have anything for me yet. They're a brand new sole proprietorship. Inactive with no passengers due to coronavirus.

    Intercity Bus Seating during Covid

    I'd restrict to 15 (or so) pax on each trip. Block the rest of the seats with "DON'T SIT HERE" signs. And maybe even remove some of them to create extra legroom. Only install the partitions on the 15 seats remaining available for use. You're not going to have more than 15 passengers on a trip...

    What would you add?

    Axe the SWC and use its equipment to restore Desert Wind and Pioneer as CZ through sections, plus a daily Sunset Limited with daily TE/SL connection.

    How "green" are trains, really? ... with DATA!!

    Amtrak's own Annual Report: https://www.amtrak.com/content/dam/projects/dotcom/english/public/documents/corporate/monthlyperformancereports/2018/Amtrak-Monthly-Performance-Report-September-2018-Final.pdf. Average Load Factor at the bottom is 51%. Of course there's many other variables to...

    How "green" are trains, really? ... with DATA!!

    Trains with Amtrak LD legroom weigh a lot more per passenger than other means of transport. For example, an empty A321neo weighs 110,500 lb and carries up to 240 passengers. An empty J4500 weighs 36,300 lb and carries up to 60 passengers. Meanwhile, an empty Superliner I weighs 157,000 lb and...
