Interesting. It figures with all the hubbub and nonsense over terrorists these days that a source such as this is functioning. Nonetheless, a very interesting site!

It's not actually a "realtime" map. It just pulls last station data off the Amtrak website and plots it onto a map. Still very cool, and probably some interesting scripting involved.

Terrorists won't blow up 50 people on an Amtrak train. They'll blow up one of the "glow" trains and take Southern California out.

And that is a cool little site there. I will defiantly check it out once and awhile.

Thanks for posting, Travis. Note that it shows three No 5 and two No 6 between Chicago and NoCal--now that's a long route.
