Must have been a "Black & White" cab . :D

"Roger that 355 arriving Ann Arbor.. Door 2 at the SECOND DECK".

355 arriving at the high level platform, In reference to the Rod Allen "Second deck" tv call from last year.. Which when he said it sounded like something else on TV
"Ann Arbor 2373 Calling... Milkshake. Over"

CN MoW foreman at McAllister in Battle Creek to the crew on 397:

"Negative 397. Is this Jason?"

(I'm assuming 397 said yes here, based on the continued conversation)

Maintainer: "Well I was wondering if y'all wanted to give me a birthday present when ya get here".

Happy Birthday, Mr. Foreman!
If the Conductor is in charge of the train, then why is he promoted to Engineer?

"FEC Dispatcher to train 102. Start dragging your feet. They've got problems with the Ft Lauderdale bridge. They're looking into it".

Bridge over the New River wouldn't go all the way down! Tied up the whole town for 2 hours at afternoon rush hour.

I'm listening to Amtrak P370 pass Q327 in Benton Harbor, MI on the Grand Rapids Sub. Q327 tells P370, with one of the new chargers..."Man, those LEDs are bright." P370 replies,"Yeah, sorry about that, they're like a super nova."

Waiting on the CP Holiday Train at Milan:

"NS 120 clear west Milaaaaannnn, over!"

Dispatch: "A lot of people out there this evening for the Holiday Train, make some extra noise going by."

"Oh, I thought they were all gathered for us!"
