|Subject: Amtrak/Via rail journey in 2006|
We are planning a month long train holiday for May/June of next year visiting friends & relatives on the way. The route we are thinking about at the moment is as follows:
Fly from Edinburgh-Newark
Amtrak Maple Leaf New York-Toronto
The Canadian Toronto-Edson (Can anyone tell me if it does stop in Edson ?)
The Canadian Edson-Vancouver
San Francisco-Lincoln NE
Lincoln NE-New York.
I have looked up most of these routes on the websites and they do seem possible.We would use a North American 30 day rail pass. Other places we would like to visit are Cedar Rapids Iowa,Denver and possibly Oregon or maybe returning W- E by a different route. I am open to any suggestions !
I would be glad of any other ideas, suggestions of places to visit on the way or any "must see" favourites etc. from anyone.
Thanks, Jan Bo'ness Scotland
