I have not been to Hamlet in about a year, and plan on going tomorrow Saturday May 4, 2002, sense the events of September 11 are you still allowed to park at Amtrak station?

That last post from Vic is a seroius one. No one, unless they have business to conduct with the RR or are bona fide employees, or contractors working for the RR, i.e. bus service, they will be identified and if observed as being unknown or pose a danger to the safety of the train crews, will be escorted off the property or arrested. I cannot emphasize this enough. Please, guys, if you want pics or want to get closer to the rail activity, I would be glad to get a release for you...We cannot afford any unauthorized persons on the property, especially now that we have remote control locos working now. There is no engr in the cab to warn you, or stop short. Please use common sense, and be careful around the tracks.

By looking at the web cam,you can see that they have an "Amshack" set- up north of the station. I have been told that at Wildwood Fl,if you do not have a ticket,or if there is no train due,they will run you off.I guess they can because it is CSX property.But,to me that is a little assine!

To what degree is the station move affecting accessability to the station area? I used to practically "live" in Hamlet during the late 70's and early 80's and went back fairly regularly thereafter until moving out of NC a couple of years ago. I know the station move is a big event and just wondered how the area around the station is being affected at this time.
