I wouldn't know. That woman does not post on AltamontPress, so whatever she does is irrlevant to this conversation.

I've never seen any car accident photos on Altamont Press (except possibly photos of grade crossing accidents). Again, not relevant to a discussion of pets on trains.

This is a discussion thread. I read and respond to whatever I want, just as you do.

Has nothing to do with railroads or pets on trains.

Again, not relevant to the question of whether pets should be allowed on trains.

You have not presented any evidence that this has actually happened. I am not going give you the satisfaction of participating in a discussion of a scenario which you made up.

No and I'm not going to watch it now. Has nothing to do with pets on trains.

I am sure there are other internet forums to discuss that testimony with others who think like you. For purposes of this thread, I am only
interested in pets on trains.

Here's an idea. Why don't you

Nothing in my post indicated my political leanings. As an Amtrak patron and a member of a passenger rail advocacy group, I never
requested that Amtrak accommodate animals. What bed did I make?
