Aaah, riding the rails once again. It was fun for me as I spent 28 1/2 years as a railroader but the surprising thing for me was I did not sleep well at all while on the train. I vividly recall riding Union Pacific trains in the 60's and the rocking motion was like a sleeping pill and off to sleep I'd go. Of course I used to ride in the special railroad passenger car (called a "business car") of my boss' and he had his own kitchen, chef, porter, dining room, bedrooms & family room on the car as well. Want anything? Just ask. That boys and girls is LUXURY travel!!!
I haven't looked at these videos in several years and I must say, I'm enjoying reliving the experience. A gang of nice, outgoing, friendly, fun-loving people and some eye-popping scenery. Penny and I couldn't believe we made the decision to take this adventure but we're sure glad we did. Each video, I believe gets a bit more interesting.
