I'm curious as to how long your vacations by train usually last, whether the trip includes multiple train routes or just one route. I'm considering a trip next year that would be a total of 14 nights, out of which six would be spent on various Amtrak routes and the remaining eight nights spread over hotels in four different cities. There would also be two lengthy days on the train without overnights. No airplanes involved. So what's the longest trip you've taken that involved rail? And what's the most consecutive nights you've spent aboard the train? For hubby and I, it's two consecutive nights in a roomette. I'm debating whether it's nuts to plan a two-week trip that's half spent onboard the train. We'd be going coast-to-coast across US and then back home again.
