gets insider view of The Plane Train
To the victor go the spoils. Such was the case as the winner of the “Name the Train” contest visited Hartsfield-Jackson to collect his prize.
Don Auensen of Marietta submitted the winning entry, The Plane Train,
in the Airport’s monthlong social media contest. Along with
the satisfaction inherent in naming the world’s busiest airport
train, Auensen received a certificate of appreciation and a $100 American
Express gift card from interim General Manager Robert Kennedy during
a visit August 10.
After the meeting, Auensen was treated to an exclusive tour of The
Plane Train’s maintenance and storage center beneath Concourse
E. The central control center and maintenance bays were highlights
of the tour provided by Steve Poerschmann, transportation systems
“Calling it The Plane Train just seemed right,” Auensen said in a prepared statement. “I knew the Airport wasn’t looking for a silly name. I didn’t know what else it could be, because The Plane Train says what it does.”
