Hi,

 

I came across this youtube video when searching for Indian trains, thought it pretty informative. From Portland to Chicago.

This is lovely--thanks for posting it, Ed. I'm in the office so could not turn on the audio, but I scanned the route. I feel much better about crossing the country on this now--more water than I was expecting, and the mountains don't look bad. I always feel better when there's a river nearby, which is of course ridiculous.

Very nice...enjoyed the journey. Brought back memories of our mid-July Seattle to Chicago on the EB with a 4 day layover in East Glacier/Glacier Park Lodge.
