Amtrak is the national intercity train network in the United States.  Amtrak operates more than 300 trains in 46 states and three Canadian provinces over 21,300 miles of track each day.  Most of Amtrak’s ridership is concentrated in the Northeast Corridor (Washington, DC-New York City-Boston), where the Acela Express high speed train runs at speeds of up to 150 MPH while in revenue service.  A network of 15 long distance routes criscrossing the country, while not the most expedient way to get somewhere, provide for a remarkable travel experience and way to see the country that cannot be matched when one travels by car or airplane.  These trains have sleeping cars, a full service dining car, and an observation car with floor to ceiling windows.
