Train Time is Found Time

Train Time is Found Time

What started as a casual mention in an interview and a tweet from a freelancer writer back in December, has turned into a program that Amtrak is truly honored to be a part of.

From the tens of thousands of responses on Twitter showing interest in the program, to the more than 16,000 applications we received. We couldn’t be more excited to have our 24 writers who will participate in this year’s Amtrak Residency program start to hit the rails.

CBS This Morning caught up with Bill Willingham, the first Amtrak Resident to travel, during his trip on the Empire Builder. Check out what Bill had to say about his time aboard the train.
