Yea, but there is nothing like an old Southern or N&W high hood still earning its keep and at times in mainline service. The "best" modern power we get here is the occasional unpatched warbonnet. You guys should enjoy the steam that runs up around Chicago.....enjoy it while its running......ya never know when they will shut it down.

And yes, I will give you the 261 and QJ trips as real passenger trains. Amtrak is NOT a true passenger train.
