Amtrak Unlimited Friends - Just one week before I depart on my Winter Amtrak and Via Rail Winter Trip.  I'll be riding Amtrak's Capitol Limited, California Zephyr, Coast Starlight and Superliner train Seattle to Vancouver BC while staying overnight in Washington, DC, Chicago, IL, Emeryville, CA, and Seattle, WA. Once in Vancouver, BC, I will ride Via Rail's CANADIAN all the way to Toronto with two night stay in Toronto to allow for delayed arrival in Toronto before flying home to Nashville from Toronto. Here is the link to my travel blog post previewing this trip. If you would like to follow along as I travel sign up to receive my almost daily blog posts, sign up on the blog site to receive them in your email inbox. Those short blog post are usually one photo and a brief comment of that day's experience which I usually post from my IPhone.
