Film about Traveling by Train

There is an excellent film about the Empire Builder, which runs from Chicago to Seattle/Portland. It is primarily interviews with coach passengers--I traveled by coach cross-country in 1977, but since then have always gotten a private room, for one reason, to avoid all the personal drama!

This may be watched for the next week.

The video about Empire Builder should be available for a few more days. Here is another video along the same lines shot on the Union Pacific just before Amtrak took over all US passenger trains. This is mostly one guy's story about riding a troop train.
