Anyone goin anywhere on a train during their February break? I went on the Acela express to New York City yesterday. Train today is at 4pm. Then on Saturday, goin to Boston on the Acela, and a Regional train comin home. What about u guys?

During my break, I rode trains 3 times. On the 17th, I rode the Acela, and a regional (return trip), on the 20th, I took a Commuter Rail to Mansfield. And on the Friday, I took a Regional to Boston and a Commuter Rail for the ride home. First time in a while Ive ridden 3 trains in less then a week.

mineola-oyster bay and back. not a long ride, but i noticed a few interesting things. i found friends of 35's newly restored caboose in oyster bay, sometime i'm going to plan a longer stay at that end of the route and check out what else they've got there. i also noticed the sign on locust tower has a keystone. i'll post a picture when i've got it.

I will probably ride the upgraded Keystone corridor to Harrisburg. I will probably go somewhere on NJT as well.
