Trains as vacations in themselves

4,792 Views
Message 11 of 11

The days of when the railroad was THE way to travel are almost all gone.  But sometimes the trains themselves can be vacations too in a way since they can be great tour guides on some routes.  At least Amtrak at least at one time would have a narrator ride the train telling you about the different climate the train is going thru and that would be the time to get your camera out.  The west coast trains will even have plug outlets for your battery chargers.  On the California Zephyr, at one time, they say that there are bears and deer that likes to come close to the tracks. The only thing I don't like about the names Amtrak has now called some of their bedrooms on the west coast trains.  The regular bedroom is what they used to call the Deluxe bedroom.  It has a private shower and the shower looks almost like an old telephone reciever.  

Seniors are just antique people rich with history.
