    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic: Amtrak-related Discussion

    Ryan, If you are referring to my post, it was a reply to a post in another thread and was moved here by the mods ... so, it is now "out of context" - sorry for the misunderstanding

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic: Amtrak-related Discussion

    Why not go the other way and cancel the Silvers north of Virginia and only run them south of there

    So a cross country trip could still confine you to the coffin pod for most of the trip

    Overpowered short consists

    They may also be at that point where one engine could pull the weight load but not supply quite enough electric power for the passenger load

    So, does that lounge area have room for everyone in the bus - or does the bus not carry very many people? I agree about pod 2B

    Please Mr. Anderson (sleeping suites in coach?)

    The article never mentioned where you sit when you are not sleeping. While the trip the person took was made longer to allow people to sleep ... that would not be the case for a truly long-distance trip and I would not want to have to stay in a sleeping pod from Miami to New York :oops: let...

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    Sadly, I missed it :(

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    Is the auto train detouring thru Waldo today? If so, what time?

    To each their own ... I don't see what all the fuss is about having a lie-flat seat. I am fine with a reclined seat and can sleep quite well in one. I do not have an issue with the current coach seats that a little extra padding wouldn't cure. If more privacy is needed, a pull down curtain...

    Silver Meteor to terminate at Jacksonville in 3/29

    Not sure if they are checking the state line going to Georgia on the east coast ... they ARE checking the cars coming in from Alabama to the west due to the rampant outbreaks in Louisiana - the termination in JAX is/was only due to the derailment of #52 not to check ID's Now, is it possible...

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    I guess they got the tracks repaired ... I see #52 is running today and it looks to be on the normal tracks through Palatka to Jax

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    Any word on how much damage to the cars on the one that derailed?

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    The Villages is not a Gated Community. There are some portions that are more private than others but, considering the size of the entire Villages Community - being gated would not work - I have never had to go through a gate to enter.

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic: Amtrak-related Discussion

    Apparently, the SWC crept through LAP tonight without actually stopping - no one on or off. Evidently, based on comments, that is unusual.

    When it is all said and done - who knows what we may end up with on LD trains and Planes ... with so many planes parked and so many trains adjusted - we may be in for a "new normal" for both modes of transportation

    Auto train derailment south of Deland 3/26

    I wish I would have known .... I could have watched it pass when it went thru Waldo It doesn't go thru Gainesville, it heads south out of Waldo and the tracks go thru Ocala

    Please Mr. Anderson (sleeping suites in coach?)

    If you look - there are four facing in each direction - 4 forward, 4 backward - 8 across However, as far as I am concerned, you could simply install a "stiff curtain" that can pull down between the coach seats in a regular viewliner and not have to raise ticket prices to achieve enough privacy

    According to this article:

    Please Mr. Anderson (sleeping suites in coach?)

    I'm not sure I understand the drawing either .... When positioned for sleep: Does a person's head go into a coffin-like space? Does a person's feet go into a confined area that would not allow one to sleep on their side without hitting their knees? Can you "recline" the seat without it having...
