    Growing up in the northeast corridor in the 1960s and 70s, I often traveled by train. The trip that sticks in my mind, though, is one I took in 1987. I traveled to Denver on Amtrak’s California Zephyr to visit my cousin. I still remember waking up in the morning, looking across the plains and seeing the Rockies rising up ahead – just like a picture postcard.

    Great show Nick!!

    I get to travel twice a year. I get to go to Kentucky for Christmas and New York City for Thanksgiving. There are no Amtrak stations within 100 miles of where I go to in Kentucky, so I don’t take the train there. I do though get to take Amtrak every year to New York City. I live in Western NC, and I drive to Charlotte, NC to catch Amtrak’s Carolinian and take that to NYC. In fact I’m going to buy my ticket for my trip in about 2 weeks from today. The train sells out fast. I love riding o the Northeast Corridor!! I have also ridden on the Southwest Chief out of Kansas City, to Chicago, and the Lake Shore Limited from Chicago to NYC. I loved it!
