For sure.

Hey I have been meaning to connect with you, I ride Amtrak to all the shows, and will be for RR.

Absolutely my favorite way to travel. Sometimes when I have to take the plane due to time issues it really make me appreciate the rails.

I can bring my own food and booze! How can you beat the views and great folks you meet!

I love train trips. You can get drunk and sleep it off, get up feeling ok and do it again.

There's something about the steam that I really love though. The history, engineering, and artistry of it really captures me.

Cool, I have never rode a steam engine train, at least I don't think I did, what kiind of trains are the Amtrak lines running.

I have seen the really old ones in yards I have past through, just never any steam.

I love the view from the tracks amazing sceanery. That what keeps me coming back. Didn't mean to focus on the booze, but it is cool to bring your own.

The modern trains are diesel engines that produce electricity, that's it. They don't pull the entire weight of the train like the old steam ones did. Each truck has an electric engine and independent brakes. Each car pulls and stops itself. That's why you don't see the gears on train wheels like my avatar anymore. I rode a couple of steam in the 60's when I was a kid. like at a museum railroad. Anymore they're just tourist pieces.

I don't drink anymore, I was just reminiscing. But there's still plenty of fun to be had in the bar car. The scenery is the best because it goes where a lot of highways don't. Mountains and plains etc, so it can be a great trip.

It would be nice to take one to Eugene, but the time constraint isn't on my side then.

I miss the days when I was traveling, I had some good times then.
