The Wonderful People You Meet on a Train

We Were Thrilled with our Trip from St. Louis to San Antonio

My husband and I recently took our first adult train trip. As we have gotten older it has become more difficult to travel long distances and we have two beautiful granddaughters in Texas. We were thrilled with our trip. The great thing about getting older is that your children now get to worry about you.

We met the nicest group of people. The diversity on the train was fantastic. Our trip was full of retired military, current military, children of all ages traveling with family to grandma's house and a couple headed up to pick up a motorcycle. We met a wonderful mother and son making the trip to get work.

The staff was wonderful. Their service was truly above and beyond. It was really hard to believe that we were on that train for 24 hours. We even got in an hour early.

Thank you to all who make this happen. We will do it again next year.
