Travel America By Train: "Coast Starlight" Part Two.

It's time to book your vacation so I am reminding you that train travel is an option with this encore post of a trip on Amtrak's Coast Starlight. This is episode two. Amtrak's Coast Starlight, a train that runs from Seattle to Los Angeles, is one of the best train rides on the planet, and it very affordable. The ride is great any time of year, but summer is especially nice. Episode two highlights the mid-portion of the trip and features fog-topped rolling hills, a tunnel, and a wild hairpin turn. Cinematically speaking, this
moving landscape is tough to beat. All aboard for a cool video adventure. I created an original western-style soundtrack for this video.

If you like train travel, you will enjoy the Jay Talking podcast featuring "The "Man In Seat 61." He was an honored Jay Talking guest and you can hear this episode, and much more, at
or via the podcast app on your mobile device. Just search Jay Talking in the app and hit "subscribe."
