  1. Love the traveling by rail.  My late father was a railroader and we traveled a lot by rail (it was a free perk back then for employees) when I was a young man.  I am in my 70s now..  My wife and I traveled from central Indiana to Chicago and then to Flagstaff, AZ and round trip couple years ago, on Amtrak.  Only one short breakdown and a four hour stop due to a derailed freight but we loved it. We did have snacks and water!  May go again in a year or so.  Loved the video.  Thanks for sharing.
