    Stranded no train � 6 , and no bus �

    I was stranded in Reno yesterday when I arrived at the Reno train station 02/16/17. I had been repeatedly assured that a bus would be there by Amtrak 1800 number. The whole trip has been a deluge of false and conflicting information about what was supposed to happen. Needless to say I was in...

    Is the signing bonus gone?

    I've noticed that there are offers for points if you spend a certain amount $1000, but there are no sign up bonus if we get the new card as it was with previous cards. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Perhaps I missed it. I don't see any point to rush to get the new card if there are no signing...

    Going to seattle on CS

    Planning to go from Lax to Sea on CS and was wondering where the crew stays. My concern is that since the train arrives late at night if it's on time and even later if it's not.

    Why blame the train

    It rubs me the wrong way :angry: when the news media always seems to blame the train because a car or truck gets hit or when a person gets killed. The train is on it's track minding it's own business :rolleyes: when some fool is walking down the track and doesn't get off the track out of...

    Amtrak needs H570 back!

    Amtrak needs H570 back. It produced a lot of revenue and a sharp increase in ridership. As for me it allowed me to ride more and further. Did anyone else use H570 to travel more ? :)
