I am working on writing articles for every Amtrak’s long-distance route. The information includes the equipment style, food on the train, accommodations, train consist, and basically the essentials for your next adventures.
The route guides were done by Amtrak and not me, but they are a fun way to learn about the communities you go through as you roll though the USA.
If you want to know when new articles go live, sign up for my email list, and you will be updated when the new articles are out.
The Auto Train
The Auto Train is the newest of all of Amtrak’s long-distance routes and the only train where you can bring your car on the train. This train allows you to skip I-95. The train runs up and down Eastcoast from the Washington DC area to the greater Orlando area.
The City of New Orleans
The City of New Orleans whisks travelers from the Midwest to the Big Easy or the other way around. This train started by Illinois Central is now continued by Amtrak.
This route has twenty=three stops, including Memphis, TN. The schedule allows you to start your fun as soon as you get off the train.
