And here we sit.  We’re still awaiting our new Engineer.  We had a temporary engineer take us here, but now we need the real McCoy to take us into Chicago.

And as we sit, a freight train was blocking the entire town of Galesburg… It’s amazing how tightly scheduled everything is.

Then, again, Congress and others have  been trying to get rid of passenger service for years, now.

Here’s hoping our new Administration makes rail travel a priority.

In the meantime, we wait, watch movies, eat snacks, and whine and worry about missing our connection.
