I understand you recently rode a from Milwaukee to Minneapolis.
Was this the first time you ever a train?
No, I have been on a train many times as a young but recently in the past 3 or 4 years
I have ridden a train again several times. There was a of time in my life that I did not
ride the train, and I thoroughly every minute of it.
How is it different the train now then it was back when you were younger?
When I was younger they had a different of train people. Back then, you weren’t served meals
at your seat. You had, if they had a car, if they had a dining car, you could go into the
dining car and eat but some trains, especially on short , like when I lived in Jaffy, Missouri,
it was halfway between Memphis and St. Louis. Those were short and they did not have dining cars.
On this trip that we just got back from yesterday, we had our, we were in the car because it’s a
handicap car. My sister is , and they brought us a menu, and they brought us a full dinner,
including salad and dessert and coffee or tea, we would like to drink.
How was the food on the train? Was it better than food?
Oh, much better. Much better. It was fixed. The chef’s did a fantastic and I understand that
it is cooked on the train. It may not be all on the train but it certainly is prepared and
the salads are prepared on the train so that you don’t get these food tastes.
Ah, that sounds though.
Oh, it was great fun! We enjoyed every of it.
