St. Louis fan John Novak took the train to Chicon, arrivng in the wee hours after many delays, not the least of which happened when the train plowed through a truck at a crossing. John says the two guys in the truck jumped clear, there were no fatalities.
Lisa Harrigan was aboard the California-to-Chicon train. Her most challenging experiences happened after the train arrived in Chicago, trying to get the staff to help move her husband, and retrieving baggage that had been locked away while she was solving the first problem.
I hope to hear about the onboard BASFA meeting later on.
