So, do I have to be the only one to mention the yearly (almost) event called "Moon The Amtrak", held in Laguna Niguel California? I'd add a link, but it may be NSFW. Google said event if you wish! Chair tater (talk) 07:37, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

The Man in Seat 61 mentions it one time. LlamaPastor31 I hate pants! They're uncomfortable and difficult to wear! 08:31, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
Is that about showing hindquarters? (talk) 13:58, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
No. (talk) 03:36, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Well could you please explain, what it is about, than? (talk) 10:06, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
It's about train travel. LlamaPastor31 I hate pants! They're uncomfortable and difficult to wear! 05:12, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

The blame the FRA narrative common with transit bloggers[edit]

Should the narrative that FRA regulations are part of the reason why Amtrak is forced to run heavy (and therefore inefficient) trains that are too different from international standards to be able to buy off the shelf trains (at notably lower prices) be noted on the main page? this and this transit blog blow into this horn and that is only the result of a short google search... As to whether that claim holds water... I am not an expert but I am inclined to believe it up to some point. The Acela for one is notably heavier than its peers in Europe Japan and China (talk) 20:43, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
