The quiz starts with easy questions but then gets harder:

I got a "75" score.

893/1000 here.

How does my 10 for 10 earn a higher score than GBN's 10 for 10?

Admittedly, I took a lucky guess on the 'Firefly' but I had the others.

834 here. There is also a 10 question Amtrak quiz if you scroll down. I got an 869 on that one, but it is a little outdated.

I did much better on the Amtrak quiz: 869. The only question I got wrong was "What keeps Amtrak from achieving national high speed electrified service as seen in Western European countries?"

I thought lack of government support would be the correct answer. The correct answer is "The size of our country". Silly me.

You took less time to respond; at first, I didn't realize there was a clock ticking. Time was of the essence.

I got a 775 on the Amtrak quiz. I also, along with Vincent, missed the high speed electrified question.

They were wrong on the states with no Amtrak service....should have included Wyoming.

I consider them also wrong with the high speed electrified quiz. by the way, if you take the test a second time, right of way at least, you get a different list of questions.

Bear in mind these are not questions set by a professional quizmaster but submitted by Joe Public. Some of those questions are very subjective rather than factual. Fun but I wouldn't get too hung up on it.

If you rate the quiz, you're given a choice of more of them to play. Also, if you give a wrong answer, you can try again for the correct answer, but for a lower score.
