Long story. Took the Vermonter from DC to Brattleboro, VT. Trip back home (to DC area) was a packed train. We were in Business Class, and even it was full.

About three hours in, the bathrooms got...

Bedbugs

As a long-time reader and longer-time lurker, I was surprised by the responses to the original poster's lament.

His concerns are legitimate, and yet he was immediately put on the defensive. Years...

I've also been a big booster of Amtrak for many years, but I had an experience this weekend on The Vermonter that has really soured me.

I wasn't impressed with People's Express. Their fleet is old (25+ years) and their staff is skeletal enough that when one pilot had a family emergency, and a second pilot had a minor eye injury,...

WOW!! I should have taken a picture of these seats on my 737. They were absolutely nothing like that!!!

I wonder how many planes they have?

Mine still had the Vision Airlines livery.

And boarding the aircraft was like stepping back into the 1990s. The upholstery and interior decor was definitely...

Me too

This is a little late, too but I thought I'd share my experiences on my first flight with People's Express.

I flew on Thursday (8.8.2014) from Boston to Newport News, VA (home).

An update...

Oooh my, what a coinky-dink.

Highway fatalities are up 13.5% the first quarter of 2012.

That's interesting that you mention that.

I also was escorted "around" the WTMD for my frisk.

I just returned from picking up my husband at the Amtrak station in Newport News, Virginia. I have never seen anything like it. The parking lot was full, the side lots were jammed, and even the road...

My husband left on the Amtrak out of Newport News headed to New York on Monday. The lone engine was pulling nine long passenger cars, and it was sold out.

He's coming home today from New York....

THANK you.

Sheesh, how delighted the TSA must be with threads such as this that stray off the facts of their egregious violations of our rights, and wander down the mind-numbingly labyrinthine...

Last week, I flew out of ORD and despite my best prayers, I got selected for the NoS. It was a large, overweight black guy who directed me into the radiation box and I purposefully stood back a bit...

Is that a not-so-subtle way of suggesting that I fabricated the whole thing? I assure you, it happened just as I have stated it here.

It was in the non-secure area and we were rushing to get the...

huh

I'm a pretty optimistic soul, but when it comes to our government, we've lost it.

This government can not go on like this. When I saw that video, I became *ENRAGED* and when I think about the...

That was an incidental fact that perhaps should have been left out of my recounting.
