Amtrak Trains Roar Into Town

The romance of a train trip cannot be denied.
While local municipalities debate regional transit and Amtrak fights for funding in Congress, trains continue to fascinate adult and child-sized enthusiasts alike.
That's why Amtrak is sponsoring Amtrak Train Days starting Saturday, May 9, at Chicago's Union Station.
The celebration stretches into November so that train aficionados will have ample opportunity to don their engineer caps and flock to their local stations to admire the transportation system that crisscrosses the United States.
