Above: Amtrak Train Travel at Cumberland, Maryland
More than 40 years after its founding, the ongoing demand for convenient passenger rail service remains steady enough to keep the Amtrak alive.
Despite the fact that airline flights are so much faster and quite a bit less expensive, Amtrak Travel remains a popular way of getting around the United States.
Amtrak trains are roomier and cozier than airplanes or buses. Most travelers agree that train travel offers the best opportunity to view America, if you have plenty of time to spare.
On-train amenities include a bar, a dining room, a view room surrounded by windows, and several types of overnight accommodations.
