Hello there and welcome to another episode on American train travel! While we talked extensively about the sleeping car in a previous episode, today we cover all the other types of cars on Amtrak’s trains, and how they truly set train travel apart from other common modes of transportation. We also talk about chemtrails, force fields, and grits, so, obviously, you don’t want to miss it!
