New York City to San Francisco

A coast to coast journey seemed fitting for my first experience on the rails in America. The trip was mainly on Amtrak trains, but I also spent a few days on the amazing private railways in Colorado and Arizona. A few bus journeys were needed to connect these up with the main line.

Amtrak – RE141, New York City (Penn) to Washington DC

Amtrak – the “Capitol Limited”, Washington DC to Chicago

Amtrak – the “California Zephyr”, Chicago to Denver

Durango & Silverton Railroad

Grand Canyon Railway

Amtrak – the “Southwest Chief”, Flagstaff to Los Angeles

Amtrak – the “Coast Starlight”, CS14, Los Angeles to Oakland (for San Francisco)

3400 miles on a classic coast to coast Amtrak adventure
