I have been a railfan all my life. My first Amtrak trip was in 2010 with my wife who has moved on to be with the lord.😥 Together we had rode almost every route twice and some more. We never got to ride the Acela though. After she left and the points system changed I've only taken a few trips. We always traveled sleeper and loved the folks we met on the train.
What are the subjects and dates for your technical books? I could be interested email me at ghharris44 <at> yahoo. Or call: 850-208-1520. Specifically I am a civil engineer that has spent most of my working life dealing with railroad and most specifically alignment and track issues. (Need a weird turnout in a non-standard rail section? I can design you one.)

Excited to be taking my first ever train trip on Monday, from Chicago to Denver on the California Zephyr. I'm a little confused by the room numbers, and I'm pretty sure I got a "bad one"going both ways, as I booked last minute. Does anyone have experience with train 5 car 540 Room 17, or train 6 car640 room 21? Thanks in advance y'all!
Sorry that nobody got to you, how was it?
