  1. It is 456 you are correct. It’s was previously sitting in the yard sanded down completely
  2. I present Metra 79 in full paint scheme!!
  3. It was 8400 series car or maybe 8500 it was on the rock island line.
  4. Don’t remember was on ri line
  5. They might be vacuum toilets... they use a lot of air pressure and have very small bowls and are slow to flush. I don't understand how they thought this was a good idea for a replacement.. it just feels like these will break down or do not flush very well
  6. New toilets? They are noisy!
  7. Hey Trainman got a question for you... the other day I got to union station 20 minutes earlier 3:40pm I looked for NCS and there it stated track 5. I wait and wait and a train pulls up.. conductor says not NCD MDN leaving at 4:16. confused I go check the board again and it’s stating NCS on track 5 and at this point people are waiting on track 5 for NCS while MDN passengers load. Check board again and now it’s showing track 13.. of course NCS is filed up with no seats anywhere.. I gave up and went back to track 5 caught the MD-N line. Are the track number assigned on the fly or Pre assigned? I wanted to avoid this again
  8. Yeah I think we need to complain to someone about this. It just doesn't make any sense to have a full train and only use one car or pick the middle cars to load. BNSF does this too on some trains.. but they load the usable cars on the platform so you don't have to walk far.
  9. I hate the Rock Island line at night time. Why do the conductors bother to fill up one car like sardines, then open other car later. Why not just open two cars like every other normal line.
  10. When im on NCS some time it opened up to many 4 track sections
  11. Well that’s good to hear that she is doing good. It sucks that these older trains are not doing so hot.
  12. I know they wanted to repaint them at some point.. but they could of just painted all of them the Surfliner colors and have it be a one off. Now we have this one in three colors...
  13. The top by the window and the bottom were left brown from cascades. In person it looks terrible.. would of came out better painting over the Amtrak logo and replace it with Metra
  14. Talk about a rush paint job lol
  15. Yeah I tried to contact her on Youtube and Twitter but haven't heard anything.. hope she's ok
