D.P., thanks for your comment. There is much more acceptance of trains by audiences at my talks now, but action in the current political climate is a long way off.

This is, of course, a "love it or leave it" message to our children. Yesterday I talked with a woman who said her son and all of his friends are thinking of moving out of the USA for two reasons: Green, and trains.

That's cool, you got to see my first lady from West Virginia. Out of curiosity, did you get to bring up the prospects for rail service with anybody there? I got called some nasty things years ago when I suggested more rail service in West Virginia, and the establishment so far still seems in the highway mode.

It would be interesting to hear what kind of reaction you got. My experience wasn't happy at all, but that was 20 years ago. Have things changed since then?
