Multi-Train Trip October 2015
In October of 2015, Andy and I took a trip which included rides on four different trains. We started on Amtrak's California Zephyr starting in Martinez, California, and riding to Chicago, Illinois. This portion of the trip had us on the train for two nights in a cozy sleeper room. We spent one night in Chicago in a hotel before flying onto Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, where we spent one night in a hotel in Winnipeg. The following day we embarked on VIA Rail Canada's The Canadian train heading west to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This ride was two nights in a sleeper compartment on the train and took us through the Canadian Rockies. Once in Vancouver, we spent one night in a hotel before catching Amtrak's Cascade Train to Seattle, Washington, which only took about four and a half hours. In Seattle, our friends Leslie and Steve hosted us in their home for three nights giving us an opportunity to sight see in the Seattle area. When we left Seattle, we boarded Amtrak's Coast Starlight for an overnight journey before finishing our trip back in Martinez, California. We don't do much train travel, but we did enjoy the trip and much of the scenery.
