On Line on Amtrak

Pacific Surfliners now have free wireless. They use cell towers along the route, and limit the bandwidth--so no streaming videos or mega downloads-- but for email and surfing, it's fine. Of course, the more people who find out about it the slower it will be. Still, nice to have it!

The Cabbage Goes to the Snow

Apparently, in the winter months Amtrak runs a Snow Train from Oakland to Reno. It's a party train to Go To the Snow. I'm told our Amfleet Cabbage has headed north for this duty. Couldn't happen to a nicer trainset.
