    @smerk - Make sure that Danny or Jo checks your luggage in as theirs. Otherwise, your luggage will be unloaded at Albany.

    On the star fox line and just realized Amtrak has us going to new york for our layover instead of union station dc. Does anyone know if they allow you to trade these out? i.e. trade our NY-boston ticket for a sonic line ticket?

    It's cool, Im not checking anyway. Thanks, though.

    Sitting with my group in the far corner trying to do class work with a shotty connection! They need a few more power supplies in this room.

    I don't think he's planned that far out. I think he is still expecting to avoid the decision.

    So what car are you guys in on the Metal Gear Line? I'm boarding at Cleveland at around 6:00AM, and I imagine a number of you will be asleep.

  • smerksmerk Registered User regular
    No sleep. That would be silly.

    Sonic Line checking in. I'll be boarding at DC tomorrow around noon... What's the plan in terms of finding one another? Everybody to the back of the train, or what? Should be a fun time.

  • BinarySamuraiBinarySamurai Registered User regular
    There's a group of five of us in the upper left corner of the south lounge feel free to join us I am in a orange griffball shirt. P.S we got a power supply :)

    I'll be catching the Sonic line at BWI and I'm in the same boat. Worst case scenario, I'll just poke around until I find some people I recognize, but if someone on one of the first stops could hop on here and let us know where you all get situated, that would be awesome.

    I'm still screwed for a train spot. Amtrak somehow lost my booking, and I only found out this morning. Managed to get a ticket to Albany, but fully booked further. If anyone getting on the megaman line at any point has a sleeper car by themselves, PLEASE let me know. I'll go halves wilt you on the sleeper, and I'll be in the dining car all night anyway.

    I'll be there too. There should be between 12-20 of us boarding at Union Station. In previous years it's been pretty easy to spot your fellow PAXers. In the previous two years, it took us a few stops to establish a base of operations, so to speak. We can work out our game plan tomorrow before we board :)

    The plan is for me to get out at each station stop with a PAX sign raised over my head. So look for a tall guy on the platform when you're boarding the train. No promises on having a sign though (I'll try to make one tomorrow morning).

    Awesome, can't wait! I suppose we're an easy enough group to pick out...

    Well, I'd recognize you anyways, so it's all good. (It was me that caught you at GameFest a couple weeks ago, if you remember)

    My wife and I will be on the Sonic line at Union Staton also. Looking forward to meeting all you fellow PAXers. Bringing Fluxx and Zombie Fluxx for some pick up games and 3DS, DS for Mario Karts!

    The drinks are expensive, but I'm a lightweight and the rum is flowing on Metal Gear.

  • alfalfadudealfalfadude Registered User
    @UEAKCrash where about's is the train now?

  • redfield85redfield85 Registered User regular
    I should probably be sleeping already. Train leaves at 7:16am from Trenton. Oiy.

    I will be the guy with a nice hockey playoff beard and maybe a Tron or Boba Fett hoodie.

    Whelp this is it, I'll be hanging around the Amtrak terminal in Penn from about 1 to 2 in the afternoon since I booked the train before the Sonic line's planned time. Hope to see some of you there! I'll have a PAX East 2011 shirt on and be with a tall kid with a braided semi-mohawk thing.

    @UEAKCrash where about's is the train now?

    I have no idea, its pretty hard to make anything out outside of the train dince it is somewhat lit inside but pitch black outside. They aren't announcing stops because of how late it is.

  • alfalfadudealfalfadude Registered User
    word. im sitting by some random...dont know how/where to move to...halp!

  • UEAKCrashUEAKCrash heh Registered User regular
    Oh! Didn't realize you were on the train! We are almost entirely all in the furthest to the front car. There's a couple seats available all the way to the front.

    I'm the guy with the blonde mohawk if you make it up there. Pretty much everyone else is sleeping, I'm tying and failing.

  • UEAKCrashUEAKCrash heh Registered User regular
    Anyone getting on Metal Gear: go as far to the front as you can, if you hit a sign that says crew members only, we are all right there. I'm sorry if there are other signs like this.

    Looks like the front seats just got filled though. There are some next to other PAXers available still though.

    Pretty sure we are on the same train. We got on at 7:16 am in Trenton. We went all the way to the last car, actually second to last row. Pretty packed on here.

    I'm with 2 others. Wondering if we should try to get us all on the same car.

    Sonic Line checking in, nearing Charlottesville presently. We're mostly (all?) grouped in train car #82688. Look for the East 2011 shirts and DSes and iPads everywhere.

    Got a long layover in union station, looking around for possible paxers. If you see a guy in a protomen shirt and what can only be described as a brown coat, hauling a big blue suitcase, yell "yo terp" until i look.

    Currently on northeast regional 172 in the dining car. We're almost to NYC. I have cookie Brigade noms and cookie brigade trading cards.

    If anyone is on this train and interested I'm hard to miss. Black hat with a deadpool pin, left side of the train.
