…I wouldn’t mind a little “European Socialism.”
I really, really love travelling by train. It’s one of the things I miss most about England.
High-speed rail. Now.
Yup! And if I may be so bold as to ask…gimme a h.s.t. from Hou to New Orleans, first? 🙂
Elspeth (what…? Y’all weren’t expecting that outta me?)
i am planning a east coast trip and i want to mix in the train. a trip from richmond to grand central station isn’t that long.
I’d commit murder for a train from Chicago to Madison. The bus takes AGES and I-90 hums balls.
“Hums Balls” – isn’t that Miz Lindsay Graham’s honorary Native American name?
I’d even visit Houston if there was train service between Hou and NOLA–every once in a while something’s happening in Tejas that I wouldn’t mind going to except for…the drive to Houston…and the traffic in Houston.
Yeah you right Michael…why do you think I want to move to Nola and give the Hou Rat Race the Heave ho? 🙂 I’m always happy driving TO New Orleans, and always cranky as hell driving ‘home’.
And speaking of socialist Europe, isn’t one of the sayings that the “Trains run on time”.
While I like Amtrak, I pretty much have to assume that the real schedule is random.
No, MapleStreet, that’s Fascist Italy actually. Or Hitler’s Germany depending on who’s making the joke. Here in non-socialist New Labour England, the trains do NOT reliably run on time…not that it has anything to do with the colour of the government particularly.
