Comments: I'm Back

How odd. I know that in Philadelphia, Amtrak owns the tracks and SEPTA (local system) has to give way to Amtrak trains.

Glad you had a good time.

There are a few places (mostly in the Northeast, with the Boston-to-Washington Northeast Corridor being the best example) where Amtrak owns its own trackage.

In theory, Amtrak trains are always supposed to receive priority, even where Amtrak doesn't own the rails. In practice, that's usually not the case.

Nope, wasn't us. (We got off at Fullerton, on Tuesday morning -- it just took me a few days to get up the strength to return to blogging.) Might well have been some other group returning from their Philmont trek, though.
