============train tip============
Lounge cars carry a bar and public seating. They usually have benches or large swivelling chairs along the sides of the car. Some lounge cars include small pianos and are staffed by contracted musicians to entertain the passengers.

These cars are often pulled in addition to the dining car, and on very long trains in addition to one or more snack or cafe cars.

Lounge cars are an important part of the appeal of passenger trains when compared to aircraft, buses and cars; there is more space to move around, socialize, eat and drink, and a good view.

SteamPink schedule


  1. I am really enjoying the ride so far.

  2. My drink name is Steamante (spumante, lemonade and a bit of steam! :P).

  3. My drink is:
    Pentecost Frowyk Inquisitor
    It's a mix of Scotch Whiskey (malt ofcourse), raw eggs and lemon juice. It's the perfect drink for when you return home after a day of zombie pigs in kilts clobbering.

  4. I'll be having a Genevieve Blakeway Syng.

    It's a little bit of rum 141 mixed with goldschlagger, apple juice, and touch of amaretto.
    It's one of those delicious drinks that makes you think you're drinking apple cider instead of alcohol (it can be drunk hot), and if you let yourself forget it's alcoholic, it STINGS.

  5. My drink is a: Matilda Hopkins Rielly

    Made with Rum, Coke, and a dash of vanilla extract.

  6. Drink: Sybil Reddin

    Similar to a Cape Cod with some cranberry juice & vodka, and, of course, a slice of lime. Except there's a dash of apple juice + a slice of lemon and an extra lime slice, all of which float in the drink & are not stuck on the side.
    : )

  7. Love the steampunk name generator. To drink: Lady Grace Beadle Killfoyle's Mint Juleps.

  8. I'll have a Hortence Hiney Hargate :D

    That's amaretto, lemon-lime soda, orange juice and a splash of grenadine. With two cherries and a lemon twist. Sweet and punchy. ;) Perfect for the end of a summer day.

  9. Personally speaking I prefer anything with Vodka or whiskey in it. But my favorite mixed drink is Stars & Stripes:
    -1/3 Grenadine
    -1/3 White Creme de Menthe
    -1/3 Creme de Violette

    Don't mix, stir or shake this, just serve as they naturally meld together.

  10. My name:

    Prof. Dr. E. Tiernan Correy II

    My drink: The Regulator.

    Steampunk simplicity means I name her:

    The Regulator and it consists of potato peel vodka and prune juice. Essential drinking when taking long train journeys where exercise is not possible.

    3/4 oz. Chambord raspberry liqueur
    3/4 oz. Kahlua coffee liqueur

  17. What wonderful drink ideas!!!!

    My favorite is Franken's Stein: which is no more or less than a genuine 19th century German stein filled to the brim with a bubbly froth of lager & a hearty shot of Jagermeister!

  18. Ha! I love stuff like this. My name is
    Prof. Dr. Elizabeth Coogan Chaffinch III (yes, PROFESSOR DOCTOR. Oh yeah). As a Professor Doctor, I must caution you to drink in moderation, of course -- ladies mustn't have noses reddened by spirits.
    That being said, spirits can be a lovely restorative. I suggest you drink as I do: infuse vodka with lavender and vanilla (soak the sprigs and bean) and serve in a glass with a sugared rim.

  19. My drink is Nettie Peckham Sheehan:

    * 1 oz. Irish whiskey
    * 1/4 oz. peach brandy
    * 1 oz. orange juice
    * 1 oz. sweet & sour mix
