You'll see nothing of America at 35,000 feet, so come down to Earth and see world class scenery from an Amtrak train across the United States.  You can travel coast to coast from as little as $232 (around £177 or €202) if you book well in advance, one of the world's great travel bargains.  The USA has an excellent rail network for visitors, and although only a skeleton network by European standards it'll take you to almost all the towns & cities a visitor wants to see, in comfort at affordable prices.  Long-distance trains in the USA are operated by the National Railroad Passenger Corporation, better known as Amtrak, www.amtrak.com.  This page explains what you need to know to plan and book a memorable trip across America by train...

COVID-19 update:  Most Amtrak trains are now running, masks must be worn.  However, Amtrak is reducing many long distance trains from daily to 3-per-week until some time in 2021.  Check at www.amtrak.com.  Restrictions currently apply on foreigners entering the United States.

在令人失望的2014年里,基金投资者们没有太多的动作。总体而言,过去11个月中,主动选股基金仅新增了350亿美元资金,还不到2013年同期新增资金(1620亿美元)的四分之一。2013年是该行业自2007年以来首次实现资金净流入。不过,这并不是说基金行业毫无作为。截止感恩节,交易所交易基金(ETFs)和被动指数型基金吸纳了2060多亿美元净存款,行业领先者先锋集团管理的基金规模在今年夏末突破了3万亿美元大关。投资者们似乎已经决定,与其把宝押在“骑手”身上,不如直接把赌注押在“赛马”身上。

There's a 10% discount for seniors over 65 on some fares.  The discount applies to the base fare but not to saver fares, flexible fares, roomette/bedroom charges.

If you choose to travel in a sleeper, the premium fare column on the Amtrak website will show the total cost for all passengers travelling in a roomette or bedroom.  This is calculated as a basic fare for each passenger plus one charge covering the whole roomette or bedroom.  The roomette or bedroom cost is the same whether it's occupied by one person or two.  So a sleeper is a lot better value if there are two of you!  The two people price in the table above is the total you pay for two people sharing a roomette or bedroom.

Tip:  You can save 10% on the basic travel fare (but not on accommodation supplements) by becoming a member of the National Association of Railroad Passengers, which at the time of writing costs $35 for an individual or $50 for a family.  It can pay for itself on one coast to coast trip.  See www.narprail.org for full details and online sign-up.

Short distance trains come in various types, all with comfortable air-conditioned seating and often with a café car.  On the Boston-New York-Washington DC route, there is now the premium fare, 150mph Acela Express high speed train, based on French TGV technology, but running on conventional tracks.

Amtrak trains:  Amfleet coaches on the New York to Chicago 'Lake Shore Limited' Amtrak trains:  Reclining seats on the New York to Chicago 'Lake Shore Limited'

Amfleet cars.  This is the New York to Chicago Lake Shore Limited at its service stop in Albany, after a scenic run down the Hudson river valley.  It'll reach Chicago's impressive Union Station next morning.

Reclining seats on long-distance Amfleet cars.  There's loads of legroom, 120v power sockets for laptops & mobiles, drop-down tables.

Dining car - discontinued from October 2019...

The most important Amtrak long-distance trains such as the Crescent have (or had) a dining-car (the two notable exceptions are the Cardinal & Silver Star which only have cafe cars).  These stainless-steel dining-cars date from the 1950s, but they have been fully refurbished inside.  The dining-car is open to all passengers, both coach class & sleeper.  Meals are included for sleeper passengers (although drinks are extra), but must be paid for by coach class passengers.  There are usually several sittings for dinner, for example at 5pm, 5.15pm, 7pm or 8pm in the case of the New York to Chicago Lake Shore Limited.  The dining-car manager will come down the train (starting with the sleepers) to take dinner reservations for your chosen sitting.  Note that couples and singles won't get a whole 4-seat restaurant table to themselves, you'll normally be seated with other passengers, a great chance to meet people even if you're travelling solo.  The food is surprisingly good:  The herb-roast chicken & rice (around $15) was a good choice, and for breakfast next morning a cooked breakfast of eggs, bacon & potatoes (around $9 including fruit juice & coffee) hits the spot.  A domestic beer costs around $5, premium beer $6, a half bottle of very good Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot costs around $14.  There is also a children's menu.  Credit cards are accepted.  You can find sample menus on the Amtrak website www.amtrak.com, click 'plan' then look for 'meal & dining options.

Viewliner sleeping-cars...

Long-distance trains in the East have Viewliner sleeping cars.  The distinctive double row of windows on these cars makes them light & airy during the day, and gives both upper & lower berths a window for star-gazing at night.  Travelling by Amtrak sleeper is a real treat.  All sleeper passengers get complimentary meals in the dining car,  and a 'coffee station' provides complimentary tea/coffee & fruit juice in the morning.  You return from dinner in the diner to find you bed made up for the night by the sleeper attendant.  A hot shower is available at the end of the corridor if you're travelling in a roomette, or en suite if you are travelling in a bedroom.  All necessary bedding, soap and towels are provided.  However, sleeper travel isn't cheap.  In Europe you can pay a small supplement for a berth in a shared couchette or sleeper compartment.  In the US, you have to pay for the whole room whether there are two of you or just one.  To give you a rough idea, some sample sleeper supplements are shown in the fares section above.  Viewliner sleeping-cars have:

Introducing Amtrak's double-deck Superliner trains...

Long-distance trains between Chicago & Los Angeles/San Francisco/Seattle/Portland, also the New Orleans-Los Angeles Sunset Limited, Seattle-Los Angeles Coast Starlight and Washington DC-Chicago Capitol Limited use impressive double-deck Superliner cars.  Superliner trains have coach class reclining seats, sleeping-cars, a dining car & an observation-lounge car.  A route guide is available free on these trains, telling you want to look out for along the way.  楼市调控加码影响成交 2017年成交量或持续走低.

Superliner reclining seats...

Coach class reclining seats are spacious with lots of legroom, comparable with business class on an airliner.  Don't worry if you can't afford a sleeper, these seats recline to about 40 degrees, and are quite easy to sleep in, in fact if there is any train in the world where I wouldn't much mind not having a sleeper, Amtrak trains are the ones I'd choose.  There are 120v power sockets for laptops & mobiles at each seat, and drinking water is available in each coach.  Unlike in Europe, your reservation does not secure a specific seat in a specific coach, you can sit where you like once on board.  An attendant looks after each seats car, and will place a 'seat ticket' above your seat to indicate that the seat is taken.  You can either bring a blanket or buy an Amtrak blanket from the lounge car.  涂料市场观察:农村市场也是一口“肥肉”.

On the upper deck is an observation lounge with armchairs & tables and huge windows for sightseeing.  On the lower deck is a cafe selling drinks & snacks.  All passengers can use the lounge car, whether they are travelling in coach class or in the sleepers.  You end up spending most of your day here, watching America unfold in front of you!   Seats are available on a first-come, first served basis, but it's not usually too difficult to find a seat or two free.  However, they do fill up for the most scenic sections of the journey!  百家家具进出口企业聚焦南康 打造千亿产业集群.

Superliner dining car...

Like the lounge car, the dining-car is open to all passengers, both coach class & sleeper, for breakfast, lunch & dinner.  Meals are included in the fare if you have a sleeper (although drinks are extra), but must be paid for if you're in coach.  However, the food isn't expensive, so treat yourself.  All the tables in a Superliner dining-car are on the top deck for great views while you eat - the kitchens are downstairs.  In the sleepers, the dining-car manager comes down the train asking each passenger which sitting for lunch or dinner they'd like, and issuing table reservations.  An announcement is made at the start of each sitting.  In coach, a steward may also come down the car asking if you'd like to reserve a seat for lunch or dinner, or you can simply go along to the diner at meal times and ask if a table is free.  If one isn't available, they may take your name and announce when your table is ready over the p.a.  Note that couples and singles don't get a whole 4-seater restaurant table to themselves, you'll normally be seated with other passengers. This is a great chance to meet people, even if you're travelling solo.  北京高污染行业2017年前退出 涂料陶瓷企业或中招.

What's the food like?  The food is surprisingly good:  The Angus Steak Burger (around $8) is great for lunch, for dinner the herb-roast chicken & rice ($14) is good and the garlic butter marinated New York Strip Steak (around $24) is excellent.  A beer costs around $5, a half bottle of very good Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot costs around $14.  For breakfast next morning a freshly-cooked breakfast of eggs, bacon & potatoes ($9 including croissant, fruit juice & coffee) hits the spot.  There is also a children's menu.  Credit cards are accepted.  You can find sample menus on the Amtrak website www.amtrak.com, click 'plan' then look for 'meal & dining options'.

Superliner sleeping-cars...

Travelling by Amtrak sleeper is a real treat.  All sleeper passengers get complimentary breakfast, lunch & dinner in the dining car,  and each sleeping-car has a 'coffee station' with complimentary tea/coffee and fruit juice available in the morning.  You return from dinner in the diner to find you bed made up for the night by the sleeper attendant.  All necessary bedding, soap and towels are provided.  Superliner sleeping-cars are double-deck, with 10 very compact 2-berth roomettes and 4 larger 2-berth bedrooms on the upper deck, whilst the lower deck has another 4 roomettes, 1 family bedroom & 1 special accessible bedroom.  The bedrooms have a private shower & toilet, for roomette passengers there are toilets on both upper and lower decks, and a hot shower on the lower deck.  The gangways to the adjacent cars are on the upper deck.  However, sleeper travel isn't cheap.  In Europe you can pay a small supplement for a berth in a shared couchette or sleeper compartment.  In the US, you have to pay for the whole room whether there are two of you or just one.  To give you a rough idea, some sample sleeper supplements are shown in the fares section above.  Superliner sleeping-cars offer:

Family Bedroom, in daytime mode... It takes up the full width of the car at one end of the lower deck, and has a sofa and jump seat that becomes 2 adult & 2 child berths at night.  Toilets & a shower are nearby.

large bullet pointAccommodation in the USA

Personal recommendations...

New York:  The Algonquin is New York's oldest operating hotel, opened in 1902, and a designated New York City Historic Landmark.  Perfectly located in mid-town Manhattan, a block or two from Times Square one way and Grand Central the other, with a lovely wood-panelled lobby and even its own hotel cat, which you may find wandering the corridors or sitting on the reception desk.  房企加速推盘决战“金九” 资金链紧融资需求加大.  For the Algonquin's history see 二季度中介业就业最景气.

Washington DC:  Phoenix Park Hotel.  A great choice, directly across the road from Union Station so handy for arrivals and departures by train, with an excellent Irish Pub doing great food & Irish beer on the premises, and just 2 minutes walk from the capitol.  From around $154 for a double.

Los Angeles:  Hotel Queen Mary.  This has got to be of the most fascinating places to stay, anywhere.  If you go to Los Angeles, consider making the Hotel Queen Mary your base to explore the Los Angeles - Hollywood - Disneyland area.  The original Queen Mary of 1936 has been permanently moored at Long Beach in California since the late 1960s, some 25 miles from Los Angeles Union Station (about a $90 taxi ride), and it's undoubtedly the most wonderful place to stay in LA.  The hotel consists of most of the original first class cabins on board the Queen Mary, and there are plenty of restaurants and bars available on board, too.  Hotel guests can more or less wander the ship at will, and even sign up for ghost hunts at night on board (and yes, from my own experience there is something going on on that beautiful ship!).  Wood panelled art deco interiors have been preserved, although a few modern items have been installed such as televisions, and (as we worked out from a historic deck plan) in some cases two of the Queen Mary's original cabins have been knocked into one hotel suite by turning one of the en suite bathrooms into a connecting corridor.  She is one of the most atmospheric places I have ever stayed.

Find hotels at Booking.comMy favourite hotel search site: www.booking.com

www.booking.com is my favourite hotel booking site and I generally prefer booking my hotels all in one place here.  You can usually book with free cancellation - this allows you to confirm your accommodation at no risk before train booking opens.  It also means you can hold accommodation while you finalise your itinerary, and alter your plans as they evolve - a feature I use all the time when putting a trip together.  I never book hotels non-refundably.  I have also come to trust their review scores - you won't be disappointed with anything over 8.0.

Tip:  It can pay to compare prices across multiple hotel sites:  HotelsCombined.com is a price comparison site which compares hotel prices on Booking.com, Hotels.com, Expedia, Accor, Agoda and many others.  Though if there's not much in it, I prefer keeping all my bookings together in one place at www.booking.com.

Tripadvisor hotel reviews...

www.tripadvisor.com is a good place to find independent travellers' reviews of the main hotels.  It also has the low-down on all the sights & attractions too.

When you're travelling you often use free WiFi in public places which may not be secure.  A VPN means your connection to the internet is encrypted & always secure, even using unsecured WiFi.  In countries such as China where access to Twitter & Facebook is restricted, a VPN gets around these restrictions.  And lastly, you can select the geographic location of the IP address you browse with, to get around geographic restrictions which some websites apply - for example one booking site charges a booking fee to non-European visitors but none to European visitors, so if you're not located in Europe you can avoid this fee by browsing with a UK IP address using a VPN.  13城试点租赁住房 保障承租人权利ExpressVPN is a best buy and I use it myself - I've signed up as an ExpressVPN affiliate, and if you go with expressvpn.com using the links on this page, you should see a special deal, 3 months free with an annual subscription, and I get a small commission to help support this site.
