Aw, I enjoyed the thread, it was just getting interesting.  :D

Anyway, the Amtrak models don't trip my trigger either. The original Rio Grande California Zephyr was awesome. Same with the Santa Fe Superchief and El Capitan.

Hehe,
I liked the story how ATSF said if Amtrak couldn't keep up the service and comfort the Super Chief had, they couldn't name their train by it. Amtrak simply just renamed it the Southwest Chief.  :D

Amtrak is in the hearts of most who lives and enjoys modern railroading, but in the category of "Undecided" in terms of good or bad...

It's like the Chicago White Sox versus Cubs, but let's not get into that. ;)

I must of missed it... I bet it was heating up. :)

Just be careful adari,
Wait, Cleveland? Is Amtrak even up there? There's probably a huge major route, and I'm going to look stupid, ah, wouldn't be the first.

Yeah(lol), i actually tape trains and go like once every 2 months for the 6:00 or the first three that pass. It's  ridiculous! "They arrive at Cleveland at 3:00 in the morning! They get to New york by 6:00! Cleveland's not as big as they say after all! lol!" yeah i still crack up to that! :D
