Ticketing update for Joliet Rocket with NKP 765...

"Following Amtrak’s announcement in March concerning charter trips and passenger cars, the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society (FWRHS) made the decision to delay ticket sales for The Joliet Rocket in order to reassess and reconfirm the cars planned for the event.

As of this writing, it is the goal of the FWRHS to finalize the consist for The Joliet Rocket by May 1st and open ticket sales within 30 days."

You can ride a bi-level any day of the week in Chicago. In a market saturated with trains already, replicating that experience is neither advisable nor cost effective.

I always thought it would be better to chase this train rather than ride what felt like a regular commuter train!

One would have been hard pressed to chase those 614 trips, considering all the 90 MPH running it did.

I was happy to pay extra to ride behind 614 in an open window car at 79 mph.  MUCH better than chasing!
