Mods, feel free to move this to the video forum if needed, I just wanted to share this in a place where the most people could see and get excited about train travel.
So almost 4 (FOUR!) years ago, my brother and I took an Amtrak trip around the country as we celebrated him graduating high school. Recently, I finally got around to finishing the video that highlights that journey.
We started in Jackson, MS and traveled to Chicago, Albuquerque, LA, Portland, and then back to Chicago and finally Jackson. It was an incredible trip and I cannot believe it has been so long since it happened. In a few weeks, I am riding the Crescent for the first time from Tuscaloosa to New Orleans, but I really need to start looking into another longer trip, but that is a discussion for another day.
I hope you enjoy this video. It really took me down memory lane while working with footage from four years ago. It is a memory I will always cherish, and I hope watching something like this will help you make that final decision to journey by rail and make some memories of your own.
