From Planning Your First Trip To Riding The Trains
Planning your first Amtrak adventure could lead to some questions; I had several when I started. After hundreds of train trips with thousands of miles, I went from having inquiries to answers. Instead of hoarding that information, I wanted to share it with you.
In 2008, when I started, the only resources available to me were the Amtrak website and an online forum. The Amtrak’s site answered the big pitcher questions, and the panel answered the experience questions I had. When I posted a question on the forum, I found people were more excited to share their negativity than to answer questions. I hope you find this site to give you honest and informative answers to your questions.
Here the main topics I have up now. Feel free to search my blog posts, for they may have useful information among my travel stories.
If you have any questions, please reach out.
