And what area are you near that Amtrak coach cleaners work at, because I am mostly looking for information about Amtrak Coach Cleaners now as my main character works for a company such as Amtrak. Just note that the name Amtrak will not be used for copyright reasons. Also, I am looking for how much they normally make a year and if they get paid weekly or bi-weekly.

This belongs in the employment forum, I believe. S&S stands for Service & Inspection.

This morning at about 8:45, I saw a 2-car Orange Line train headed inbound at Sullivan on the third track. What was up with that?

Not sure why you posted that in this thread, but anyways, I got an alert this morning about a disabled train and 20 minute delays or so. That was likely the dead set limping to Wellington.

Quick question, while i am at work i listen to my scanner, i have heard the terminal train dispatcher at boston south station tell the engineer "okay to have the starter", what does that mean by "okay to have the starter"? I might use this for my book.

I have made a number of updates (i.e. CSX tk 7 was extended to Tower 1, the Boston Herald siding, the Green Lines mapped, etc) since then.

See my website for my other completed maps.

Some programmer apparently doesn't follow: "Thirty days hath September..." :)

Didn't notice this thread until recently. I obtained a poster size version of the 1993 map during a tour of the South Station dispatch theater a few years ago. I scanned it with the large format scanner at my work and it has been at this link for a long time:
