I think @Zeke should reign in your romanticism!

Yeah, I bought that "inner beauty" line from the travel agent for AMTrak. I saw junkyards, metal recycling plants, county and city dumps...traveled in a tiny place where you eat next to your toilet...and the beds fold down and you get a scratchy blanket.

Yeah, it was better than going coach, but this was the stupidest way to go. It wasn't pretty and it was loaded with stops and starts and it was BORING. I hated every second of it.

Couldn't sleep either because of all the stops and starts. It was horrendous and NOT CHEAP either.

You would have to tie me down to travel that way again. NEVER again.

Then again I am biased because I like trains.

I keep hearing about this beautiful train trip that goes along the scenic East Coast around autumn, or something of the sort. Would be nice to get a large gathering to a nice train trek... if only I knew the name of such a trip and had the ability to organize such a venture.
