The Amtrak network is vast, covering over 20,000 miles of rail track in the United States; connecting many major cities and sweeping across the continent under wide-open skies
and through ever-changing terrain
A journey that I have always wanted to do, often we think of the USA as a single centre destination, a single state, for example, however not many travellers have made the epic trip from West to East, or vice versa, and no better way to do it, than let someone else do the hard work, travelling by train evokes a bygone era, although the Amtrak trains have moved on somewhat from the steam engines of days gone by.
The beauty of a train trip, much like a cruise, is that you are taken to each stop, you get to mix with a wide selection of fellow passengers, some using the service for business reasons, maybe visiting family and friends, along with travellers looking for a different experience.
I would very much suggest taking a private bedroom if funds permit, for more information on this itinerary and many more I can offer, please get in touch with me directly, email@example.com 01491 575511 www.dgtravel.co.uk
For a truly unique experience when travelling by train, Amtrak offers private rooms on many routes across the country. Located in the Sleeping Car, a private room is a perfect option for customers seeking privacy, space and comfort on their trip.
