I recomend that you go see it. I saw it in Spokane, Wa and it was well worth the price, oh wait its FREE!! If you are a disney fan it is a must see. What they have done with the cars is real cool.

No Jang, it's being routed south to Toledo from Dearborn and then west over the MAW's 4 track main to Fort Wayne where they will blow the train up. :D

Just kidding little foamer!
You're wrong, and here's why.

A great photographer can make a great photo out of any kind of light from any angle at any time, life is not a studio! There is no such thing as bad light.

Its coming in from Omaha, which is the previous scheduled stop. I wouldn't be shocked if got put on the eastbound Cal. Zephyr and serviced in Chicago.

I'll be riding Amtrak out of Chicago on Sept. 2, so if I see it there, ill mention something.

No cab tours were allowed. It has its own P42s wrapped up with Scrooge on the side, so it should not be on any other train but itself.

Too bad. It would be nice to bring the Artrain cars back to their home base (They were bought to be used for this train)

Hum departing Chicago, 7:00 EST, might see him as I should be on Q16902 tonight. Although we would have to be a hour or better late, as we should be pulling into Bedford Park by that time.
