Turns out, you don’t need a car to see America.

Traveling coast-to-coast across the United States by train is one of the worlds greatest travel experiences.

Amazingly, its also one of the worlds greatest travel bargains the 3,400-mile trip can cost as little as $232 (Editor update 4 Nov. 2016)).

The American railroads are reminiscent of a bygone era. These were the trains that tamed the Wild West, fueled the Gold Rush, and served as the backbone of the Industrial Revolution. At its peak, it was the most luxurious mode of transportation that money could buy. Alas, the golden age of American railroads came to an end. Automobiles arrived and the airplane industry took off. Soon, many railroad companies had to cut losses and ceased their passenger services.

Today, the USA still has an excellent rail network for visitors that will take you to almost all the towns and cities a visitor would want to see. Arguably, the most scenic and historic of all the train routes in America is the cross-country journey from San Francisco to New York. As you climb through the snow-capped Sierra Nevadas, and further east through the heart of the Rockies, you may find it hard to disagree.

In December 2011, I traveled from San Francisco to New York by train.

This is my trip in pictures.
