It's a good day to travel the rails! Heading to the 805. 💕 #amtrak #amtrakstarlite #amtraktakemethere
Winter park to Granby #amtraktakemethere
My 👧. Girls rode trains too. Although at this age not very well.  #amtrak #amtraktakemethere #allaboard #californiazephyr #californiazephyrtrain
Finally made it to Glenwood Springs after living in CO for 14 years. I just hope the train ride back to Denver is easier than on the way out so I can enjoy the scenery. I don’t recommend riding a train with a 21 month old.  #amtrak #californiazephyr #amtraktakemethere  #glenwoodspringscolorado #glenwoodhotsprings #fathersday #fathersday2019
☀️ California by train ☀️ I'm a first-timer at the West coast, so I'm totally bedazzled because it's soooooo beautiful!  Driving the highway 1 down was a great experience, but I also loved the part I did with the #pacificsurfliner train 🚆 . #traveltip I took the train from San Luis Obispo to Ventura. It's a very comfortable train ride. As I took the 6 am train and missed breakfast at the hostel, I decided to book a business class seat. Those seats are really comfortable, have free WiFi, but most important for me: free coffee, water and breakfast cookies!! I paid $60 for that seat (but sometimes you can get it cheaper. Economy is around $40). And I could enjoy the beautiful views all the way.... (You can check images of the train and views in my highlight California) .  I do love traveling by train. It's so relaxing. So If you have questions about it, contact me! I will gladly convince you to take that train 😄
It's been over 15 years since I came into Denver this way and I'm greeted with a triple rainbow. @amtrak #tripplerainbow #rainbow #railfan #railroad #amtrak #amtraktakemethere #usegaleforce
Soooooooo what happens when you encourage your friend to get on the road ASAP because it’s gonna rain and you want her to get home safely?!?!? You get dropped off at the station and decide to catch the next train that is boarding as soon as you get there. At least that’s what I did... I wasn’t paying attention because I was rushing (remember, the train was boarding when I arrived). Needless to say, not only did I end up on the Acela, but in First Class on the Acela - so much for that value ticket that I was so proud of. Needless to say.... this rain is coming down sideways like I might end up in Oz. I guess I’m just happy to be on my way home with free bubbly to boot. #amtraktakemethere #earliertrain #somuchforvalue #headinghome #smhatmyself #fullbuttookthefreemeal
Bye bye Simi Valley....till next time #simivalley #trainrides #amtraktakemethere
Yukie’s first @amtrak ride.  Totally loved it.  The Coast Starlight really traverses some spectacular scenery through the mountains and forests. The climb and descent around Mt Shasta were pretty extreme.  The full moon illuminated the snow still clinging to massive pine trees that staunchly towered above our train as well as along the slopes and rocky terrain hundreds of feet below * * * #cruisemaven #travelwithoutflying #stuffiesofinstagram #travelinglife #allaboard #amtraktakemethere #amtrak #coaststarlight #travelbytrain #viewfromatrain #passionpassport #passportready #amtrakgram #amtraktrain

Preserving The Connection  AMTK 237 curves through Inwood, Manhattan as it approaches the end of the West Side Line. The WSL makes up the southernmost segment of Amtrak’s Empire Corridor, the amalgamation of four state funded services which connect NYC to upstate and points in Canada.  #amtrak #amtraktrain #amtrakgram #amtraktakemethere #amtrakadventures #travelnortheast #newyorkcity #newyork_ig #newyorklife #newyorkscenes #newscenes #wednesday #trains #railroadphotography #railphotosusa #urbanphotography #cityscape #railfans_of_instagram #railfannation #railfanning_america @railphotos_usa @railfan_features #greenery #innature #railstagram #railsupremacy @railsupremacy #amtrakempirebuilder
I flew over 100,000 miles last year and it never gets easier. Traveling by train takes away so much of the stress that comes with air travel. I had become so accustomed to just traveling from point A to point B that I rarely stopped to think about all the places I was passing by along the way. @Amtrak offers so many different routes I didn’t even know existed and traveling by train gives you the opportunity to stop at so many places you wouldn’t normally have the chance. The ease of getting on and off the train made for such a unique experience and I really enjoyed the freedom that it gave me. It definitely won’t be my last time taking the scenic route!

Ready to de-train. Confirmed lodging @airbnb and @enterprise will pick us up at at the @amtrak station in Kansas City. Note to self:  research why the train whistle blows all.night.long.
Photographer @TiffPenguin hit the rails with @Travelzoo and @Amtrak to showcase her journey between Denver and San Francisco on Amtrak's California Zephyr.

Close quarters near Las Vegas, New Mexico from our roomette window.
First looks at our #train #travels heading for Kansas City, Missouri.

Those city lights keep bringing me back 🌉 | I recently took a trip with @Travelzoo and @Amtrak from Denver to San Francisco on the California Zephyr. Taking the train completely changed the way I view travel. One of my favorite parts was watching the changing scenery as we made our way closer to our destination. Being able to hop on and off and explore the different cities we passed along the way made for such a memorable experience. The amenities and comfort of the train allowed me to savor the experience like I never have before. This trip has shown me that traveling really is about the journey, not just the destination. Check out the link in my bio for the full story! #amtraktakemethere
Blast Off from Fullerton California.
Day 5 - Travel by train day!! Cleveland Amtrak station at 5 am. Ready for the long trek.  A few snacks - a good book - a lot of Tsum Tsum - and 13 hrs later we’re in NYC. Getting confused on the subway!! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🥴. But we made it. We’re at our hotel - after making a few wrong turns.  Now a couple of days to explore the Big Apple 🍎 !! #vacay2019 #madeittothebigapple #amtraktakemethere #seethecountrybytrain #thesubwaysconfusing
THE TRAIN TRIP FROM HELL - Left 4 hours late - Old grumpy baby boomers complaining about everything. - Got 3 hours from Chicago train stopped for for 9 hours - School bus ride from Bryan, OH to Toledo, OH to the sister train. - New train had no food, and very gew drinks - Got lunch at 4pm, pizza delived to the train but only one slice each. - Stopped in Pittsburg  for one hour (not my choice) to "check the engine". By this point I really want alcohol and so do the staff - Baby boomers  still complaining. - Get a plea from the conductor. HE IS DOING THE BEST HE CAN. - Dinner at 10.30pm. KFC delivered to the train. They didnt order enough so I was sitting with guilt chicken in my stomach as the people that missed out were the elderly and the not so mobile. - Thankfully they had pizza left over from lunch. The generous serving  size of one slice per person served them in good stead . - We went back to sleep (I only pack 1 pair of underwear in my carry one so I am hoping we get to washington in the early morning ) - WE FINALLY ARRIVED at 5.30am. The poor staff  were just as relieved as we were. -Uber to our supercute hotel and super comfy bed - I am starting to doubt thay @amtrak has social media and I might actually have to call them.  #travel #traveladventures #amtrak #traintripfromhell #amtraktakemethere #iwish #whyarebabyboomerssogrumpy #kfc #holiday #holiyay
So our first train was delayed 6+ hours but the fine folks at @amtrak got us onto another train which is running 2 1/2 hours ahead of the original so we won’t be quite as late getting to our destination! #gallagherdd19part1 #amtraktakemethere #thankyouamtrak #maybeitsthehat #oldschoolcustomerservice #treatpeoplewithkindness

Challenger  Acela Express 2158 arrives at Newark Penn Station on track 2, led by power car 2003. The train was 12 minutes behind, but, looking on the tracker, it seems to have picked it up.  #acelaexpress #acela #amtrakacela #northeastcorridor #nec #amtrakgram #amtraktrain #amtraktakemethere #leadership #thetrain #takingthetrain #trains #trainstation #trains #trainstagram #newwave #likenewyorkcity #thursday #travelphotography #newark #newarkpennstation #pennstation

@amtrak views, today’s pic was taken aboard the mighty Cardinal! The Cardinal runs three times a week (in each direction) from New York Penn Station to Chicago Union Station. On this trip I traveled between Washington DC and Chicago. This route has stunning views and offers coach and business class seating plus one sleeper car. For food there is a cafe/dinette car. #amtraktrain #amtrakviews #trainviews #traintravel #traintravelexpert #travelblogger #travelswithkev #passengertrain #traintraveler #traintraveling #traintravelersofinstagram #amtraktakemethere
Southwest Texas
Waking up in Washington state paralleling the Columbia River. Oregon is just on the other side. I was supposed to be on this route in September 2016, but raging fires closed the waterway and rails. As wide as the river is, sparks jumped across and the Washington side was burning, too. As we traveling the Willamette Valley, I walked to the café car to pick up my boxed breakfast. Since the train divided in Spokane during the night, the dining car was on the Seattle section. The Portland section of the train kept the observation and café car.  Really disappointed not to have a hot breakfast in the diner but at least the yogurt was cold and the croissant was warm. The photo with Stonehenge... It’s a replica of England's Stonehenge located in Maryhill, Washington. It was commissioned in the early 20th century by the wealthy entrepreneur Sam Hill, ( as in “what in the Sam Hill”) and dedicated on July 4, 1918 as a memorial to the people who had died in World War I.  If you go to Maryhill Museum, you’ll be right there. Next, multi-purpose building graced with graffiti in Wishram, Wa.  Finally, this is the beautifully restored Portland, OR Union Station, opened in 1896 on Valentine’s Day... * * * #cruisemaven #amtrak #amtrakacrossamerica #travelgram #seetheusa #slowtravel #amtraktakemethere #amtrakempirebuilder #willamettevalley #washingtonwines #travelpassport #discover #exploremore #trains #portlandunionstation #amtrakboxedbreakfast #maryhillstonehenge #columbiariver #travelblogger #travelphotography #iphoneonly #sunriseoftheday #sunrise_pics
What do you do if your child develops an interest in transportation vehicle?  You take him on one! 🚂  We went on a little adventure on a  train ride to a near by city.  It was fun, very different from our everyday life in a car.  Short but Fun! #connectingyoutoca #amtrakadventures #blackvoyageurs 📷 @bronica.road
