What they should do is take a local train up the Main Line, switch to a bus at Route 17 and then meet up with their OCS up in Harriman. It will probably take twice as long to accomplish but they will see what their commuters are having to put up with every day...

The holiday train was parked at GCT today at about 12:10pm when I walked through.

Curious as to its consist- I understand that the observation car was Erie Lackawanna, I think, but what about the other 2 cars? It had locomotives on both ends, and there were employees around it, so I didn't want to get too close.
