    Cardinal becomoing a daily train?

    On the Surfliner from Grover Beach to Burbank right now in Business; never saw the attendant and evidently they’ve done away with the snack boxes, too.

    Baggage Service Oakland Connecting to Fisherman’s Wharf

    Ha! Good thing we're on 14. Only bad part is it's almost an hour late into SBA and I doubt it's going to make that up by the time it gets to SLO where we jump on... Still shows on time to OKJ. Yeah, really. Looking forward to the cruise. Haven't been on a ship for 10 years. I've missed it...

    Baggage Service Oakland Connecting to Fisherman’s Wharf

    Thank you! That's exactly what we needed to know. I think we'll just load them on the sleeper downstairs bin and take them off ourselves; it seems like this would save time vs waiting for baggage.

    Baggage Service Oakland Connecting to Fisherman’s Wharf

    My wife and I are taking the Coast Starlight connecting at Oakland Jack London for Fisherman’s Wharf for a 10-day cruise the next day. While there’s bag service in Oakland to get our bags off the CS, Amtrak can’t tell us for sure if they will put our bags on the connecting bus. Fisherman’s Wharf...

    Are there any other tips you can pass along? I do most of my business travel on UA and DL.

    New Amtrak Guest Rewards Master Card - Fall 2015

    Just to be clear, we could earn points on the Sapphire card and transfer them to AGR? And while it may end someday, it's still an option? Edit: I see what you're saying about the 40,000 points. I forgot we get that bonus after the $4,000 spend in the first 3 months. I always have a flurry of...

    New Amtrak Guest Rewards Master Card - Fall 2015

    It was the $95 a year Sapphire Preferred card (free for the first year). I'm starting to travel a lot more for my business and it looked like a more full-featured offering. I know BA doesn't give a **** but I put all my business expenses on the Chase AGR card. Probably between $7k and $12k per...

    New Amtrak Guest Rewards Master Card - Fall 2015

    Wife and I both got denied by BA. So we both applied and got Chase Sapphire cards instead and will use the Sapphire card on our travels to burn up the 180,000 Chase AGR points we accumulated over the past 18 months. So BA can suck it.

    House Passes 2015 THUD ... $1.4 billion for Amtrak

    Are you seriously making the argument that people ride Amtrak because of the hamburgers? That brings to mind "The Holy Grail": "Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?" Sent from my iPad Air using Amtrak Forum

    House Passes 2015 THUD ... $1.4 billion for Amtrak

    Just curious: at what point should Amtrak be forced to stand or fall on its own? Because if Amtrak is paying $16 for a hamburger they sell for $9.50, its problems are unsolvable. Sent from my iPad Air using Amtrak Forum

    It doesn't happen by magic, it happens through accountability and competition—neither of which the govt is subject to. Moderators: Is this one innocuous enough to pass the test? Sent from my iPad Air using Amtrak Forum

    EB mess

    I'm talking about the guy who disparaged two companies that employ hundreds of thousands of people moving millions of packages daily and that still manage to make a profit without a govt hammock to support them. The post was there. Whether it got removed or not isn't the issue. The issue, which...

    EB mess

    Actually I did—the OP mentioned FedEx and UPS by name as inefficient large corporations put to shame by the amazingly nimble USPS—who, in my experience, usually has their tracking updated within a couple of days of delivery. It's there but I'm not wasting my time looking for it. Too political...

    EB mess

    I get that. It is disconcerting, however, that the crowd clamoring for more govt funding for Amtrak and who defend the fraud and waste that is the hallmark of govt agencies and programs is allowed to post unfettered. Especially when another quasi-govt agency (USPS) is cited as a model of...

    EB mess

    Interesting that my post—critical of the govt—was, evidently, removed while the "govt is great and does everything well as opposed to large, inefficient companies like FedEx and UPS" posts remain. I'm starting to understand that political posts are not allowed—unless they mesh with the "Amtrak...

    Sorry for the spellcheck error. To restate, it's the Pecos River bridge located east of Langtry, Texas. Don't miss it.

    Amenities Being Eliminated from Long Distance Routes

    Obviously, I do not know what all the airlines use, but, my old airline, Continental/United, has the flight attendants use POS handheld machines to sell meals and drinks in coach. They have an integrated receipt printer and the whole thing is slightly larger than an iPhone. Back in the day...
