Central VA.
We just finished my train trip CVS to PDX staying one night there and I want to start plans for next year (Congress willing).

In 1999 we took a CVS to SLC trip. We had 2 days there

We like to go from Sunday to Sunday in late May. Staying one or two nights before returning.

My wife suggested the southwest, as we have never been in that part of the country.

Departing from either LYH or CVS is preferred.

I know a lot of you have plenty of experience on various routes, so I would like to challenge members of this forum to help me plan a trip to remember.

You could ride on Crescent to New Orleans and ride on Sunset and ride to the west. Best attraction would be LAX. Sunset is three times a week schedule.

Other choice is riding on Cardinal to Chicago and ride on Southwest Chief to Lamy (Santa Fe), ABQ, or Grand Canyon. There are two stops for Grand Canyon- one with bus and other one with steam engine train.
