@jkpsr How about extending the AC trains to the Phila Airport?  Now, wouldn't that be useful!

@rittenhouse I used to use it in the late 70s.  It was pretty terrible, but beat getting rained on.

For my 50th birthday, my wife took me to Denver so we could ride the CZ to SF!  A great trip!  I wrote a little travelog...

I've taken my shoes off.  I'll probably do it again. (Don't tell anyone...)

Brushing your teeth is a good idea.  Here's the rub.  Pointy-bottom cups.  I'm not sure the water to the sink in the Amfleet II bathrooms is potable, so I get my water from the dispenser next to the cup supply.  Now, I'm holding the cup in one hand and have to maneuver the toothbrush and toothpaste without crushing my cup full of water.  You can't put the cup down and you really DON'T want to put your toothbrush down.  So, what do I do?  Mostly fumble around, spill water and almost drop my toothbrush on the floor, but somehow, teeth get brushed!

Suggestion?  Cups with flat bottoms.  Grab one from the lounge car if you can.
