what *fantastic* ads! I'm trying to remember my outfits... i think I kept it snappy but my memory is bad. You know, I have to admit, that long trip on the Southwest Chief I made on my own, so I had plenty of room. I must say the service was fantastic, but I do get the impression that the staff may get let down by the aging equipment every now and then.

There's definitely an upswing of tourist traffic on these trains now, and it really is well worth it. I only wish I could have got off to explore. Tip: I found the tickets on the City of New Orleans to be among the cheapest to pre-book. We fitted two of us in that cabin and it was a great trip!

One plus to the economic downturn: less freight, and all the trains running more or less to schedule!

My husband and I keep thinking about doing a train trip but mostly just think. I did do a bit of research on it. We do travel a bit in our tiny camper.

Lizzie, I'm with you. If they are all dressed in 1940s gabardine and snappy fedoras, I'm there!

The adverts are beautiful. I have always had romantic notions about a train trip in Canada or maybe one through the national parks.
