I have read the book, have gained much of my information about Amtrak from this book, and agree with the following information about the book which I have quoted from the back cover:
Discover the romantic adventure of rail travel in North America aboard famous trains like the California Zephyr, the Broadway Limited, the Coast Starlight, the Southwest Chief, the Canadian, the Hudson Bay and many more. All the facts you need -- all the extras you want.
