5 Weird Things People Photograph on Amtrak

Since we're handling the driving, passengers tend to snap tons of photos on our trains. In fact, you're adding about 1,000 photos a week on Instagram. That's awesome because all your friends can share in your train adventures (tagged #Amtrak), but your pics also get a little weird.

When the sun goes down on your scenery shots and you're tired of selfies, you get creative. Here are our faves.

1. Celebrity Spotting!
Miss Pac-Man travels by train. Who knew?

@housdan2. Too Cool for School
Proof that you really can control the temperature in your own sleeper. We hear these passengers like it nice and chilly.

@jamieblount3. A Small Angry Man
Some people take the Quiet Car waaaaay too seriously.

@GarrettRoss4. Jerky for Every Occasion
We've seen Bridesmaids. We'll stick to the cafe car, thanks.

@ocjerky5. Strange Change
Now here's something you don't see everyday or .... ever ... really.

I know the exact train that 2 dollar bill and 50 cent piece came from.  On the Cafe Car!

These photos are great! :) Around here we see two dollar bills all the time. We have a local merchant who regularly gives them out as change.
