Tomorrow morning, God willing, I'm going to wake up early and catch the northbound Crescent, train #20, head off for NYP. Then on Monday, i'll catch train #1, the Sunset Limited, departing for LAX. So stay tuned for those videos.

I figure I might as well get my fill of Amtrak while I still can...when I move to ATL next week, my Amtrak spotting options will be fewer.  Wink

Really? That little shack that says "Amtrak Station" I always drive by off of I-85 looks full of life...  Wink

Well I said "fewer", not shot altogether.  Wink

From what I hear the Crescent is pretty popular with Atlanta passengers going up to D.C.

What, no sound? No playing of "City of New Orleans" by Arlo Guthrie in the background?

AMTRAK should be enjoyed while it's still around...I don't know how it's going to look in 5 years.

When you get to ATL it'll be easy to get back to MSY for visits since the trip there and back are both day trains and very inexpensive for a roomette. Less than $200 rountrip...you can't pay the gas with that in a car.

Nice video of the train, but I'm with Halls...where's the music?  Wink



Is my Pan Am ticket to the moon still good?

Just 1 train in each direction.

It is damn sure popular with New Orleans-Atlanta passengers. They reserve a whole coach for Atlanta out of NOL

Oh, I meant on video. My move is in five days so unfortunately there's no time to catch a train.  Sad

Yep. And it's a single level one at that. I've always liked the Superliners better. Although Viewliner sleepers are pretty nice.
