Many years ago, when traveling by rail was a luxurious experience, America built the finest railroad cars in the world. Those days are over, but many of the old cars still exist, having been handed over to Amtrak when it began operations in 1971.
|Car 10031, the Great Dome|
The Great Dome is being included on just four trips, one of which unfortunately was today (Train 50 from Chicago to Washington). The other three are:
- Nov 5, Train 51, WAS-CHI
- Nov 6, Train 50, CHI-WAS
- Nov 12, Train 51, WAS CHI
|Amtrak's Cardinal route is featuring the Great Dome on just a few trips between Chicago and Washington, D.C.|
As I'm writing this, ticket prices start at just $83. Unfortunately, having found out about this slightly too late, I can't make any of the dates. If you can and do, though, send pictures!
