The train has spent the last few hours speeding Eastward, I think we start heading North after Marshall Texas.
Here’s a screen-cap from Streets 2009, click on it for a huge version.
The sleeper car is a little different this time. The tiny closet has been replaced by a large hook and an open storage area. The single large step which you climbed to get into the bunk is now two steps, a little narrower. The halls feel narrower too, i think the room might be a tiny bit larger.
Our conductor is doing a better job keeping this rig rolling. The trip North is progressing more smoothly, we’re spending a lot less time at the stops.
My seat is on the west-facing side of the train again, so I’m seeing the same scenery again in reverse… I don’t really think I’m missing anything on the other side.
My EVDO connection has been working pretty good, I’ve been getting 15-20kb/sec uploading all these pics and videos.
