Around America - by train

22 March 2002 to 20 April 2002

VIA Rail Canada and Amtrak had introduced the North American Railpass, which allowed 30 days of almost unlimited travel through the US and Canada. We decided to use this to visit old friends and see new places. We made a big loop: Ottawa to Montreal to New York to North Carolina to Atlanta to New Orleans to Los Angeles to Palo Alto to San Francisco to Sacramento to Portland to Chicago to Toronto to Ottawa.


The Railpass covered our transportation only: sleeping berths and meals were extra. On the other hand, we got senior citizens' rates on the passes! The following pages show each segment of the journey: that is, the travel to a given place, and what happened while we were at that place. The photos are mostly of rail-related and transportation subjects, though some family and friends are included.
