Photo of the Week


Your votes have been tallied from the far corners of TwitterFacebook and Google+! The winner of this week’s Photo of the Week is Cherish, who snapped this memory capturing pic while taking her twin daughters on a mini vacay to the Bay Area aboard the train!

We offer many special comforts that make train travel ideal for traveling with children. There is a Café Car full of snacks and table seating perfect for coloring, outlets to plug-in gadgets and room to move around and explore, which can be perfect for parents traveling with children.

Planning on taking a trip with your little ones soon? Follow Hannah’s advice, a mom who recently traveled with her two kids aboard the Capitol Limited: Ask.

“Don’t be afraid to ask for help, she says. “Amtrak staff are so helpful and even other passengers. If you need help getting off the train, ask. If you need help getting a bag down, ask.”

Do you remember traveling on the train when you were young or introducing your little ones to Amtrak for the first time? Tell us about it in the comments below!

If you’d like to submit your best Amtrak pics for our Photo of the Week contest,  tag your photo #Amtrak. Each Friday we’ll pick the best one from that week to feature here on our blog!
