Subject: American Orient Express
Ziners, I never knew there was such a thing until I read about it in Travel America Magazine. It seems this would be a good way to get a broad overview of regions of the US or Canada without all that pesky packing and unpacking normally associated with a tour. They have a tour called Great Transcontinental Rail Journey that takes you from Washington DC to Los Angeles, travelling thru the South and Southwest that sounds very appealing. Has anyone ever taken one of these train tours? http://americanorientexpress.com/html/tours/Great_Transcontinental.html
