I'm well aware of what's happening with Amtrak trains. I belong to a forum that talk "Amtrak". In fact, I'm heading to CA to meet up with about 40-50 of these train friends.Ah, yes. The Southwest Chief. You should be aware-- I've seen some YouTube videos of that train being pulled by a BNSF loco after one of the Amtrak locos breaks down. I would be prepared if something similar were to happen. Union Pacific will do that, too. That line has a history of broken locos. Just FYI
Thinking about planning my trip to the west coast in Oct. I got the to ahead from my boss (I was concerned about the timing). Hoping to take the trains out & may take a train part way back then fly home...or maybe take trains all the way home too.
The Bay Area. San Francisco. Will be riding trains, street cars & anything else that run on rails.
