Trains in the Water

Not apropos of anything, just I thought maybe someone else around here might be interested.

Best viewed full screen.

Spoiler: Nothing bad happens. :)

The first time I tried to take a train in USA it was delayed by 5 hours due to flooding on tracks.

Wouldn't know, but it was a proper train, not the local light rail variety.

What I'm really asking in Northeast corridor or not.

If California, then no.

California.
The Amtrak train that goes up and down the West Coast?

I've taken it a few times, but delays are not uncommon, so I hear. My parents who are retired like to use it, because they aren't in a big hurry.

There's a website you can check to see if it's going to be on time before you go to the station.

If this thread is going to have any hope of long term survival, it's going to need to get India involved as soon as possible.

That's the one.

I much prefer a drive, especially if taking a full coastal trip.
