Amtrak is an essential part of America’s transportation system for over 28 million passengers. Amtrak Across America profiles every line from the past and present. Whether it was a legacy Streamliner of the pre-Amtrak era – Champions, Chiefs, Eagles, Rockets, Zephyrs – or today’s modern Acela Express, or even one of the anticipated, high speed, “corridor trains”, they’re all here.
With evocative photos, postcards, memorabilia and other collateral, this book is a journey through the past 40 years of Amtrak across America, and all the preceding rail lines that transformed the nation. This expanded edition has new information on all Amtrak’s routes making this useful for anyone thinking of riding the rails.
