Being partly disabled, airports and flying are a huge PITA for me, so when the time comes, I'm taking the train. Yeah, it takes a long time, but I don't mind, and they sell beer on board!

Of course, I now have to wait....and wait. Nothing to do in the mean time but keep reading forums and go out and take pictures (oh, that and that job thing too!). This is Amtrak's California Zephyr heading east toward Reno NV coming down off Donner Pass.
Nice capture! I love making the run to the Amtrak station...
