So I have gotten on the train once again.  I said goodbye to the Novaks and ran into the terminal.  It was only 11:45 but people were already getting on the train.  I got in line with a teenager who I would find out later was named Bobby.  We got to the gate only to find out they were only boarding sleeper cars at the moment.  So off I trudged to the waiting lounge.  Sitting down I found out Bobby was one of the people involved in the peeing incident.  So I talked to him about his troubles.  We meet up with Beth and started to talk and then headed onto the train.  This train has a different feel.  The crew is younger, Chris, the Claudette of this trip did the beginning announcement in the car.  Beth has tried to piggyback off my writer status, jokingly of course but to be fair she probably deserves it more than me.  We didn't leave until 12:30 because we needed another engine.  Around me this time there is a British writer on my right who wrote a book about her hometown in England called Milstead.  They decided to visit the town in Georgia, which has the same name where they were treated like royalty there.  Behind me sits a Belgian kid who is traveling across Canada and in front sits two Dutch girls couch surfing across the country.    I also got Chris to allow me to take a photo of his sleeping berth and I believe got me another free dinner.  Beth tried to get on my free dinner pass we will see how it goes.
