In honor of Independence Day, our July banner features a train from Uncle Sam’s very own passenger rail service, Amtrak. This one is the Empire Builder, traveling between Chicago and Seattle, including a jaunt through Glacier National Park. It’s Amtrak’s most popular overnight train–with scenery like this, it’s easy to understand why.
Like every train appearing here, the Empire Builder runs on subjective time, despite transiting three time zones along its route.
