I am currently in the 1st bedroom

on the right in car #9110 on the

Southbound Silver Star train #91

We just left Carey North Carolina

Next stop will be Southern Pines

at about 10:36 PM

I still fly most of the time

but a few times a year for

a change of pace I love the

overnight train

I could see through the trees

as we passed (& stopped in DeLand)

about 30 minutes behind schedule

The Beatty WQ looks like an image

out of time & very forlorn (sad)

In a way I'm glad it's there

The Silver Star & the Silver Meteor

were the names of the 2 daily trains

that the Seaboard Airline Railway ran

between NYC & Miami in the 1st half

of the last century & now glommed

by Amtrak for their use without fee

Only the names are the same (sadly)

Most of this trip is on rental

trackage from CSX South of DC

There has been improvement

on much of this line since my

last trip in in September

Chic, perhaps you should consider getting a private car such as the Jomar.
