Album Info:I rode on Amtrak with my Dad from Poplar Bluff, Missouri to Milawukee, Wisconsin on trains 22, 337, 334, and 21. We left on August 7th going north on trains 22 and 337, changing in Chicago. We came back south on trains 334 and 21 on August 10th, we got home early in the morning on August 10th. Dad and I made a similar trip in 2004 to Chicago from Poplar Bluff on July 13-15th. This was the farthest north we had ever been and was the first time we had to change trains en route. This was a very fun trip and saw lots of action along the way!

5:40 P.M.-In the Dining Car
Title:  5:40 P.M.-In the Dining Car
Description:  I had a 5:00 dinner reservation. We arrived into Pontiac at 5:25, 23 minutes late. I ate the New York Strip Steak, vegetables, a baked potato (tater), and drank a Pepsi. All of this cost me about 20 bucks, but it was fricken good. I sat with a man from Chicago, and a woman from Detroit. They were a little bit amazed that I always knew where we were, what crops were planted beside the tracks, and what 4 lane highway we were right beside...which was I-55.

1:04 A.M.-Dining Car Galley
Title:  1:04 A.M.-Dining Car Galley
Description:  I talked to Bill, the former SP now Amtrak Conductor that I speak to often, along another woman conductor from Little Rock (he is also out of Little Rock) in the Dining Car, he allowed me to go down into the galley (kitchen) of the dining car, not much different than the cars of the 1950's but slightly longer and a little bit wider, but the overall stainless steel look was the same. This is looking towards the front of the train. (Notice the time, we were supposed to be in Poplar Bluff at 1:02, we're still 50 or so minutes out!)
