First a Hug, Then a Mission

Before embarking on her very first long-distance trip, a girl needs a proper send off by her family. Lucky for Kylie, that’s exactly what she received from proud father Greg and younger brother Logan. Armed with hugs, kisses and well wishes, Kylie was all smiles as she boarded our Texas Eagle for a mission trip in Chicago.


Amtrak challenged Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind Humans of New York, to leave New York and capture #AmtrakStories from across the country. For 31 days, we’ll share one new portrait and story each day on our blog in celebration of the customers who ride America’s Railroad.
