Trains, planes, automobiles (was ... tell us what you think)

Planes, trains, and automobiles.

You left "trains" off the "how did you get here" question. I'm going to answer "bus", but I came in on Amtrak.

That's what we get for re-hashing the machine-generated DLV survey for Pinkfest. :)

There's a story behind that. ... And a "but wait, there's more" in there too. :)

When we started the survey for DLV, Amtrak did serve Las Vegas. They scaled the service back to a bus connection (into the old train depot by the Plaza downtown) from Kingman.

A couple of years ago somebody noted the option still on the survey and mentioned that the Amtrak bus connection had been discontinued, so we took it off.

Now they tell me (the ubiquitous "they") that they now have a similar service, an Amtrak bus connection to McCarran Airport. We'll probably put that back on the survey for next year.

Just for fun, I looked up Amtrak from Pennsylvania - it would take just
over four days, and is priced at $822 each way :-)

That's kinda odd. We did AMTRAK from South Bend (not far outside
Chicago) to DC and it only took a day and a half.

And some people wonder why very few take the long-haul trains anymore!
