The Southwest Chief rounds a bend in New Mexico.


Shipwreck in Mukilteo, WA, viewed from the Coast Starlight.
Ugh. The stretch from Edmonds to Everett is so amazing.
I filmed this a few months ago while going through the Cascades, in Washington State, on the Amtrak Empire Builder. This was part of a cross-country train trip that I took with the USA Rail Pass. This video captures one of the most scenic parts of the trip (on the aptly named Scenic Subdivision), and also includes the longest railroad tunnel in the US.

Man, that's incredible. The views and scenery were gorgeous but the most surprising thing of this video is just how long the end of the tunnel is visible for. I really got to do a cross-country trip one day. I've got a map on my wall of the major Amtrak passages and a spreadsheet of possible routes and the cost for a round trip. I just gotta do it.

We were actually in the tunnel long enough for me to go back to my seat, upload the footage to my laptop, walk back to the end of the train, and resume recording. I had a great time on this trip, and it highly recommended. The California Zephyr is purportedly one of the most beautiful routes, but I have yet to do that one.
