While the phonetic pronunciation of those letters could lead to some colorful assumptions, I think it's "French Quarter Fest".
I thought that every weekend night there was a fest. In a visit back before Katrina, I rode the 2:15 a.m. St. Charles trip from the Canal Street loop out to the carbarn and it was a memorable experience.
Amtrak's proposed schedule for the two daily round trips was posted on AU a while back, possibly two or three years or longer ago. Maybe not even this thread, though I doubt it. Does anyone remember where?
A Mobile TV station broadcast an NBC News feed that a contract(s) had been let for a storage track and platform. As a result, Amtrak announced that service would start this coming October. I sure hope that I don't have to admit "Shame me once, shame on you. Shame me twice, shame on me." :mad:

BTW, the two-train schedules were posted. Sorry, but I don't have them right now.
