    i love the status maps. believe it or not, we still have dial-up in our neck of the wilderness. the status maps load quickly. forget about amtrak's train tracker.

    We are currently conducting site maintenance.

    The Amtrak.com reservation system is temporarily unavailable while we perform site maintenance. To make reservations, try again early afternoon Eastern time on Amtrak.com. Or you can use the Amtrak mobile app for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone or call 1-800-USA-RAIL and speak to a customer service representative. We appreciate your patience.

    Another milestone very soon. The East map should hit 2 million tonight. It's taken almost 8 years to get here. On the first day, Sept. 11, 2006, there were 9 hits.

    and there was concern that amtrak's train tracker would make the status maps out-moded. i didn't think so then and nobody thinks so now. long live the status maps

    Love the status maps - but I do love the train tracker! The solari board is a really cool tool as well!

    9 now. So track away.

    Just hit another milestone. On 8/14/2014 the 1 millionth Alert was sent out. I don't post the number anywhere - you'll just have to take my word for it.

    Love love love those alerts! So convenient when I'm out for the day and need to know if I have to get to the station on time for my return trip or if have bonus time coming (whether I want bonus time or not is another matter…).

    Thank you!

    For those of you who like to follow these things, the west map will be hitting 4,000,000 pretty soon. Who will be the lucky one to get it?
