America Needs More Trains! Amtrak DC-Williamsburg Review


Amtrak DC-Williamsburg is part of the TPOL Won’t Visit All 50 States And That’s OK Trip Report.

I wrote that I won’t visit all 50 states and that I was fine with it. I would reconsider this proposition if America had an expansive train network. It doesn’t have to be as fancy as China or Japan (see Bullet Trains and Business Class). It could be slow and dated like the one I took in Bulgaria. It would be a dream come true if it were like my favorite train experience from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. Instead, America has limited rail to limited destinations. Instead of complaining, I would like to express appreciation for my train ride from DC to one of the nicest cities in America, Williamsburg, Virginia. And I shall do so in pictures:

The Old Northeast Regional
All aboard
Decently comfortable seats

Safe arrival

So long


Welcome to Williamsburg
