    Most Beautiful Train Stations in the US

    I'll put in a plug for my hometown train station - the new Raleigh Union Station is pretty nice. The one downside is the long walk from the waiting area to the platform due to the location of the station. Otherwise, in a great location in the hottest corner of downtown.

    yes, I was just commenting that the station is nice but the Amtrak area is a disgrace. Can't wait for the makeover to be complete!

    Awful Trip on The Zephyr

    I think the OP is in the right to complain about the trip. However, there's just so much information out there that there - tons of Youtube videos on people's experiences riding the California Zephyr, blogs, articles etc....

    Ultimate Cross-Country Trip - Ideas? Best Stops?

    I've ridden Amtrak a ton locally within Virginia/Carolinas but have never done a cross-country trip on any of the long distance routes. With the discounted USA Rail Pass and a ton of vacation days saved up from not traveling last year, it made me think about maybe doing a trip later this year...

    Adirondack Dome Car 2019

    I'm thinking about taking a trip on the Adirondack train in October. I had read online that on select trains there sometimes is a dome car added on. Does anyone have any information about what trains that might be on for the 2019 fall foliage season?

    California Zephyr: Sleeper & Coach Travel

    Hey! I sort of have a stupid question but I guess this would be the best place to ask! I'm planning a week long trip on the California Zephyr.
