  • Ontario, CA and the Tri-Weekly Sunset Limited leaving L.A.

    In our current COVID-19 world, I find myself working from home. The past two weeks have been extremely busy helping to manage bus service cuts due to driver shortages. It’s made me realize just how important public transit is, as an essential public service. Now is not the time though that I will be taking […]

  • Durand, MI – an Amtrak station and railroad museum

    When I visit new stations there are some that I thoroughly research, there are others that I visit more spontaneously, particularly when Louise and I make road trips, Durand–(78 photos) was as one of these stations and looked so impressive that we came back for a thorough visit the following summer. Just over a year […]

  • The Flint and Lapeer Amtrak Blue Water Stations

    Three times on our way back from visiting my now late grandmother in Syracuse we went via Southern Ontario, I visited a few VIA Rail stations on these trips, but that section needs a bunch of love that makes adding these stations complicated. On two different trips, two years apart as we drove along I-69 […]

  • Stopping in Elyria on a sad trip to Syracuse

    In August my grandmother, Mary Louise Hartenstien died at age 93. This grandmother was my travel companion on many trips from going to the Galapagos, to Costa Rica, on a Disney cruise, and on a trip that’s particularly covered on this website, going on the Rocky Mountaineer. Making stopovers on trips to visit her are […]

  • Flying Home From Disneyland to my first ride on Amtrak’s Blue Water to Niles

    After a great day at Dinseyland, on a trip designed to keep us on eastern time, we work up (almost naturally) shortly before 6:00am at the Courtyard by Marriot Anaheim Convention Center, quickly packed up and hailed a Lyft to John Wayne Airport. The ride was quick (taking from 6:09 to 6:27) and cost $16.49, […]

  • Heading back from Vancouver via SkyTrain, United Airlines, the Lake Shore Limited and 2 Ubers

    This is the final post of my Pacific Northwest Up to Date trip.┬áIt’s a bit later than I’d like but I wanted to rebuild Chicago-Union Station first to get those 2 photos properly processed with the station. Me and my Dad have four excellent days skiing at Whistler. We head up there on the 6:00am […]

  • Chicago-Union Station is Rebuilt with Tons of New Photos

    I made a page for Chicago-Union Station, way back in 2008 in an old format that didn’t acknowledge Metra, and pretty much stopped updating it. I got into the bad habit of embedding photos from trip reports through Chicago-Union Station (I plan to continue to do this in trip reports of photos such as lines […]

  • A Good Friday Day-Trip to Kalamazoo (by Car)

    Louise and I have formed a little tradition of trying to go and work somewhere like a coffee shop together when I have a holiday off from work for a long weekend when we have no other plans. Good Friday (March 30, 2018) was one of these days and we decided to take a day […]

  • Driving back from Thanksgiving in Syracuse via Rochester and Erie

    This past Thanksgiving Louise and I drove (for the second straight year) to and from my grandmother’s house in Syracuse. Taking the Lake Shore Limited we’ve considered but in order to get a Roomette would be over $900 total and even going round-trip coach I was seeing prices of $400 to $500. With the price […]
