How the Metroliner was born

My friend Joel (not a meatspace friend, but an online friend through our shared admiration for Jean Shepherd) was one of the “Mad Men” who made advertising interesting up until the pre-lunch Martini was banned. Being a train buff, I was stunned to discover that his prodding got Amtrak to provide the Metroliner from New York to Washington in 2 hours and 59 civilised minutes. His blog is well worth a trawl, by the way.

Thanks, Joel!
