The question of "hosting the summit" vs. "providing accommodation for leaders" is largely a distinction without a difference. A lot of the meetings are bilateral and hosted by one of the leaders in their accommodation. A separate location for the full sessions and press conferences has the obvious advantage that the media can be corralled there and only a few VIPs will be moving about.

I like the optimism on here expecting President Biden and not President Harris. June is a long time for a 78 year old. Trump was a youngster.

Brains clearly age at different rates. So long as he avoids the bleach injections, he'll get through it.

Joe Biden is no stranger to trains. He has been called Amtrak Joe.

Indeed -- so much so that his local station has been renamed after him.

1941 and 1958 diagrams: https://www.s-r-s.org.uk/html/gwf/S1086-12.pdf
from https://www.s-r-s.org.uk/html/gwf/S1086.htm

Not sure of current stuff - 2nd bay lost from 1958 but otherwise similar??

Edit to add - http://www.svrsig.org/diags/S1086.htm - changes in 1964

Further edit Picture showing shunt signal still in place dated 6/2012


Thank you both.

You have inspired me to ask about other station renamings ... http://www.passenger.chat/24550

Just another clarification. Newquay is extremely well suited for the biggest aircraft to fly in. It is a front runner to become the UK (United Kingdom) spaceport due to its long runway, and was, until mothballed also a US airbase with a lot of very nasty missiles stored there,  and high security so the USAF (United States Air Force) will be very familiar with it.

It struggled in Dublin with ground clearance. But I am sure Amtrak Joe would love the ride on a chartered train from Quintrell Downs after a short drive from the airport, reversing at Par and Penzance.

My money is on a chopper to the hotel lawn or golf course.

More likely would be drive to St Erth and get the train round to Carbis Bay. I gather the recent phone call between Johnson and Biden focussed a fair but on train journeys!

They have both now?  Grin Things have changed for the better since I lived in Redruth, and MK (Milton Keynes) got 34 votes in the election. That was in spite of having a local branch committee with more than 34 members.
