Saturday, May 8th, 2010 is National Train Day and there will celebrations around the country in major train stations, small depots, and transportation museums around the country.  You can read my column on the festivities – Marking Americans’ love affair with the rails , but here are a few highlights and a few bonus photos.
Amtrak is celebrating National Day Train Day with free events that include model train displays, tours of private railroad cars, cooking demonstrations and a wide range of other activities at train stations in New York, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles. At Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station, there will an exhibit titled Baseball Junction: The History of Baseball and the American Railroad with memorabilia, photos and videos. At Chicago’s Union Station, they’ll be talking about the role train travel played in the history of blues music in America.  Posters and other memorabilia from the Chicago Blues Museum will be on display and there will be a performance of train-themed blues songs by Big Bill and Larry “Mud” Morganfield, who are the sons of legendary blues musician Muddy Waters.

A spokeswoman for the Metro system said the system handled the crisis pretty well,despite some minor water infiltrations in underground stations that workers were prepared for. Jeff Lucero,55,of Gaithersburg,Md.,who works for the Bureau of Reclamation in the Department of Interior said he had to spend the night in a hotel because of the hurricane,and he was ready to take Metro home when it opened. Fernando Partida,37,who is from Mexico and was visiting Washington on a business trip,said he had to suspend all his activities Monday because of the Metro shutdown.

The city’s usually busy train and bus terminal,Union Station,was nearly empty because most of Amtrak’s trains were canceled for the second day and most buses weren’t running.
Timothy Stokes,Bolt Bus spokesman,said all Northeast trips were canceled due to the hurricane and the company automatically refunded customer’s tickets.


Karim Falh,29,a cab driver from Washington,said he worked Monday but business wasn’t  good because passengers were unwilling to pay the $15 extreme weather surcharge.

Being a journalist is not just a career for me,it defines who I am because I have always been passionate about news and politics. During my first year of college at Cairo University,I had an internship with youm7 online newspaper at a time when online news started to kick off in Egypt. That work is in addition to a lot of courses and activities I have done that put me closer to my goal of being a professional reporter: I have taken a summer course on human rights at Beirut Arab University. Scripps Howard Foundation Wire content is free to any news organization that gives the reporter a byline and credits the SHFWire. Need a story covered?SHFWire interns can cover breaking news or a scheduled news event and write longer feature stories.
As he waited on a Metro platform Tuesday afternoon,Partida said he was happy that Metro reopened so soon. She said she was “pleasantly surprised” that Metro was reopened,and she was heading back to work to make up for some of the lost time.
SHFWire stories are free to any news organization that gives the reporter a byline and credits the SHFWire.
Amtrak officials said they were not sure when trains to Philadelphia and New York would start running again.


That is why the Scripps Howard Foundation internship is like a dream coming true; being at the heart of the capital gives you a close insight on the news industry with high-profile events happening around the clock. The work environment was pretty challenging,considering funding and readership,but it was a very successful experience for me because it gave me hands-on reporting techniques and multimedia reporting skills.
Being a board member enhanced my ability to make critical decisions in a short time regarding what to publish and what to discard. Feel free to pull stories and multimedia off the website or contact us if you need assistance. We ask only that you give the reporting interns a byline and that you credit the Scripps Howard Foundation Wire. It taught me that a newspaper is mainly about our responsibility to deliver accurate and fair news to the public.
Interns write news, sports, business, health, home and garden, personal technology, travel and food stories.
But with partial Metro service returning in the afternoon,the city began to recover from the hurricane’s effects.
