Train travel still an option
I had the opportunity to experience this old transportation favorite when I went on a Amtrak trip to Wisconsin over Thanksgiving break. The trip was an over-nighter from Longview, Texas, to Chicago, which allowed me the full train experience.
After my numerous plane flights in the past year, I would have to say it cannot compare to the luxurious comfort of train travel. The train seats are spacious with two foot rests per seat, the aisles are not cramped and the view is not restricted by a two feet by one foot oval window.
