More Train Wreck #1 (From Chic Silber)


Chic Silber said...

No where near this switch junction but

within 10 miles of it in the past 3 weeks

there have been 2 Amtrak Silver Star vs

car crashes (Amtrak won both events)

Chic Silber said...

The Silver Star is 1 of the 2

daily Amtrak trains between

NY & Miami (2 each way) Both

the Star & the Silver Meteor

were names from the Seaboard

Airline Railway "Silver Service"

It is the only pair of trains

that takes a side route through

Tampa & offers dedicated motor

coach connection to Sarasota

I've had the pleasure of this

train on 6 of my trips in the

last 2 years to break up my

very frequent flying & it's

relaxed travel with no TSA

1 of the advantages of being

semi retired
