You must have been, getting your tie stuck to the back of your seat.
I've never been on Amtrak. I feel like I'm missing out.
I'm cringing just thinking about that. Never thought about that being a problem!
The amtrak acela is outstanding. Knocks about 30 minutes off the northeast regional trip, is much smoother, quieter, and delays are uncommon since it gets priority.
Its basically replaced the shuttle from laguardia for my regular trips from nyc to DC.
you are. try it. if you dont mind the extra dough, try the acela express like quad mentioned.
Definitely. Any by the time you factor in getting to and standing around the airport, it's just as fast.
I notice it and thought it looked sharp. It looked to me like a gun club with red overcheck. It made me wonder if he could be wearing a tweed suit underneath .
I can't find a good picture of it, but I think he was wearing a tweed suit underneath. Looked almost like a fawn herringbone with a red regimental tie. Never knew he was such a snappy dresser.
That thing could, and should, be so much faster than it is. Drives the design engineer in me nuts.
Oh yeah. It's only like 45 mins faster than the local--half of that gain is probably just from going express and not stopping at every stop. Quite maddening.
I understand that it's an issue with the tracks--most of the tracks are too old/busted to support high speed, and it would be too expensive to build new ones.
you ate a design engineer?
*noticed how i opted out of the easy sex joak. im classy like that.
Amtrak is not so glorious in Florida. I remember my rides to Fort Lauderdale being cramped, loud, and in need of refurbishing, aside from it always being late. Moving around was the only plus.
It had been some years, so maybe it has changed. Flying isn't much better I suppose, the speed is the only advantage...
A lot of it isn't so much the tracks themselves, but the alignment, older bridges, and at-grade crossings that require significantly slower speeds. Most of the time is lost in those stretches, and the deceleration/acceleration stretches following. :nerd:
Needed hot sauce. I mean...uh...
Much better explanation than mine! Thank you, sir.
