At the moment 18 minutes late out of Fraser, estimated OT into DEN. What a surprise!<GBG>

Hill and Huntington would never approve that spartan interior on their private cars!

I would have thought that the interior would have been a bit more fancy. They look like Ikea kitchen table chairs, an Ihop lobby ceiling fixture, and standard "AmCurtains". I guess things aren't too cushy at the top.

Actually the interior of the car seems to look a little better than when I saw it in Washington DC before. There is another area that is sort of a "lounge area" if you will.

So now the car is heading back to Chicago on #6, and eventually I guess back to Washington, DC. Was Kummant onboard?

I think of the last few immediate past presidents Amtrak has had, Gunn likely used this car the most. I am not including Claytor of course, who was known for travelling all over the system - as Amtrak presidents should do as time allows. More managers need to get out on the road to see what is going on!

this was my EXACT same reaction minus the Ikea branded thought. Those chairs (complete with the routered out handle space) look a little too country home feelie to me.
