TAKING THE TRAIN TO THE GAME.

Yesterday, Milwaukee radio station WTMJ was quoting Brewer fans as thanking Amtrak for "adding trains" to get them to and from Game 163.  The Superintendent has not yet been able to confirm either relief trains (a second section) or strengthening the formations from the usual six car rakes.  Baseball fans did ride the trains, in sufficent numbers to crowd the streets of Wrigleyville with that deeper shade of blue, and they did make enough noise that the (beer-swilling widebody) Cub fans couldn't drown them out.

The trains that got to Chicago before and back to Milwaukee after a day baseball game are also the most heavily patronized trains on ordinary business days.
