Of course, the brand new Siemens Venture trainsets will be assigned to the Ethan Allen once the Amfleet Is and Genesis units are phased out of passenger rail service.

Six years four months and 2 days until parole. But whose counting. Maybe just maybe I see those train sets...

When I went into town a week ago to visit friends from Indianapolis staying at Palmer House (and I stayed over myself), there were ten Ventures "just sitting there" at Lumber Street.

Somehow, I don't think I'm the first passenger, Amtrak, BNSF, or METRA, to wonder "why".

This apparent explanation circulated around here of lead residue in the drinking water system is getting "old". Surely that could have been addressed by now and those cars placed in revenue service.

Going in again next week (however, possibly by auto) to the Symphony. We shall see.
