We always knew it would be a long day, previous experience of the US Train service is that is can be heavily delayed.  We left the hotel in Washington on the 7am shuttle and headed for the Amtrak Station, we always planned to try and miss the rush hour and also get there early enough.

The Carolinian train left on time, but unfortunately some of the rear carriges suffered air conditioning problems, so we were quickly 2 hours late and this was extended to 3.5 hours.  So instead of arriving at around 8:30pm it was nearly Middnight.  So a 14 hour train ride. 

However, a quick taxi ride and we were at the Hotel, which is in Uptown Charlotte. 

The plan for Friday is to visit the newly opened Nascar Hall of Fame, we have tickets booked for 10am and then to spend the rest of the day walking around Charlotte.  At 5pm tonight we have a welcome event and have to pickup the tickets for the race weekend.  Weathe looks at the present time nearly 90 degrees today.  Some rain tomorrow afternoon - but clear on Sunday for the race.

A few pictures on route to Charlotte North Carolina,

Lots of Love Les & Caroline xxxx
