Thinking of traveling in the comming years?
Which way are you planning of traveling?
In this section we will cover what it is like to travel by TRAIN rather than by airplane.
This is a website devoted to trains and train knowledge. So it would only be fair to talk about travel by train?
In the United States Amtrak operates over 34 major and minor trains.
Tower City Center, Cleveland
Here are some links to the following trains` homepages Adirondack, Capitol Limited, Pennsylvanian,Auto train and the Coast Starlight.
Amtrak also operates motorcoach connections from major Amtrak stations nationwide to surrounding areas. Basically places the train can`t reach or would be impratical to go to. (Call 1-800-USA-RAIL for up to the minute info on rutes and services Amtrak Provides.)

Note from the webmaster: On my previous travels before the gurantee do not match up to the service, quality, knowledge, dependibility of the train and the train`s staff. This past (2000) summer I took a trip around the US on Amtrak. I rode on the Capitol Limited → Empire Builder → Coast Starlight → Texas Eagle → Capitol Limited to Washington DC → Metroliner to Baltimore, Md. Then the opposite comming back. On that trip I was impressed with all aspects of the trip. Among all trains on Amtrak`s System I liked the Coast Starlight the most. Click here for photos from that section of my trip. Or click here for the Coast Starlight`s homepage. SO because of that I am HIGHLY recommending you take a Amtrak Trip soon! You won`t be let down, and if you are you can get a discount, see the Satasfaction Gurantee.
