I swear Amtrak could not PLAN to make me this annoyed. I was out running some errands today and since I was driving past the station I thought I'd stop and see if there was a train scheduled. And, as it turned out, there was one due in five minutes. So I went out onto the platform with my camera and waited. And waited. In bitter cold weather with a stiff north wind which the station platform funnels into a nice howling gale. I stayed out there until even my organs were cold, and then finally figured the train must have come and gone early and gave up and went home.
And guess, just guess what I heard the very instant I opened the car door in my driveway(which is too far away from the station to get back in time)?
AUGH. This is like, the second time this has happened.
