Subject: Amtrak/Via rail journey in 2006
Hi Ziners,

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
