Hello all! Just hopping on to learn from the wisdom of others! I have enjoyed Amtrak for short jaunts of 6 hrs or less but am planning a coast to coast excursion on the Empire Builder this summer. Thanks for all your advice and assistance!

Take it easy .......

Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!
