Planning a Trip on Amtrak? Get in the Right Frame of Mind

Amtrak is a unique travel experience, but some travelers come away from their trip dissatisfied because they start out expecting way more than Amtrak can possibly deliver. For an Amtrak trip, especially an overnight trip, it's important to embark with the right frame of mind, ready for an adventure and expecting the unexpected.
